    Dragoon Camp?

    I was poking around looking for more info on camps in my neck of the woods when I found this.... It says Dragoon Camp. Google Map coordinates are 31.5035, -109.5456.

    Here is the link to the book I found it in...

    The National gazetteer of the United States of America: Arizona 1986 - Geological Survey (U.S.), United States Board on Geographic Names - Google Books

    I hope this is a good lead for some one...

    The second column tells you what it is. Like,

    Spring
    Reservoir
    Building
    Summit
    Locale
    Ridge
    Canyon
    Airport
    Etc.

    Looks like pretty much everything in Az.

    the dragoon mountains are cochise stronghold...two trails into the dragoons...east and west ...three trails were used to 'secure' the area...by the dragoon and other troopies.

    Speaking of Middle March, you know anything about the town? I've been there several times but doesn't look like there was ever much of a town. The mine is quite interesting and looks like there maybe more copper there. I'd hate to see that area get strip mined.

    I guess I could get around to reading one of my books on mining. I have History of Mining in Arizona Vol. I, II, III. I'm sure it would be in there. One website called it a mining camp not a town and said there was 100 people that lived there. I have so many books to read and so little time.

    I've got a book on the Dragoon mountains that I've read before. I don't remember it saying anything about the town. Its got 10 pages on Middle March. Pretty much just information on the different mining companies, how much was taken out, who the people were. I'll have to read it again. So I'm guessing it was just a mining camp.
