2. Memorial to Arizona Confederate Troops Marker
This is a "classic" style Arizona marker from when the "Five C's" - copper, cattle, cotton, citrus and climate - drove the economy. Petrified wood and Arizona native stone are used in the memorial's construction. In this case, chrysocolla and other copper ore have been shaped into the state's outline. Many early markers have style including mortared stone, although the use of copper ore is rare.
