Summary

On or about May 19, 1975, the Arizona State Museum was informed by Mr. Alan Gross of the State Parks System that the monument commemorating the Union dead at the Battle of Picacho Pass had been moved from its original location. Further, that while excavations for this removal were being conducted (either by the Parks personnel or the Tucson firm employed for the removal), allegedly human skeletal remains were uncovered beneath the monument. The ASM was requested to investigate and to remove the remains.
