Arizona History – July 31st

Friday, July 31st

On this date in 1875, Captain A.W. Corliss, commanding at Fort McDowell, reported to the Department of Arizona Headquarters that the roof on one wing of the guard house had fallen in and the roof on the main building was liable to fall in at any moment.

On this date in 1903, the Prescott Journal Miner announced that the hanging of two murderers “was from a professional or official standpoint” a perfect success.
