"Arizona celebrates 100 years of Statehood"

Arizona Statehood came on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 1912 – coincidentally, exactly 50 years after the Confederates had first declared Arizona a territory. Movie cameras recorded President Taft signing the proclamation, the first time this technology had ever chronicled such an event.

This week, Arizona has been proudly celebrating its centennial birthday!
