Fought in hilly terrain cut through by the Santa Fe Trail, the battle of Glorieta saw the forces of Confederate General Henry Hopkins Sibley pitched against the Union troops of Colonel Edward Canby. The March 1862 battle's uncertain outcome was soon overshadowed by the Union's capture of Sibley's supply train, which sent the Confederates fleeing back to Texas, never to return.
