  1. Listened to the very loud cannon blast at 12 noon today, and visited several tables to learn about cavalry life back in the 1800’s, a “doctor” from that time talk about the benefits of bleeding patients and how surgeries were done, and the gambling game of faro, with playing cards and chips.
    Lots of families and visitors at the Presidio today to learn all about 19th century Tucson. Happy Statehood Day.
