Hey all,
I would like your opinions as to whether the 1861-1862 Campaign into the New Mexico Territory was of any significance to the overall outcome of the war.
We know the final Union victories in these areas brought an end to the Southern states vision of the American Southwest. But did it matter?
If the South had conquered New Mexico territory and southern California, what sort of  impact would this have had on the overall war efforts?
I do talks on this subject matter and would like informed opinions, as to the above questions, so I may gain a broader perspective of the importance of this campaign.:)
