The Law in Territorial Arizona – Presentation by Jack Lasseter
January 20 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$15
This is one of Jack’s favorite talks because it tells the story of how this land was acquired from the Mexicans; the Spanish law that came with it and is still with us today; the early counties which included our lost county, Pah-Ute County, which is now that part of Nevada where Las Vegas is located; why we have the 15 counties we have; why it took so long for us to become a territory and eventually a state; what the early courts, lawyers and judges were like here on this wild frontier; and some examples of vigilante justice that seem taken right from the silver screen. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served. $15 per lecture. A portion of the proceeds supports our education and preservation programs. Please call for reservations and future dates, 520-398-2252 or e-mail email@example.com
