What do these flags have in common?




It's Tuesday - Tucson Trivia Day! All four of these flags have flown over Tucson. Spain ruled Tucson and the rest of Mexico until 1821.

Then Mexico took over but sold Tucson (as well as a huge tract of land) to the U.S. in 1854.

Tucson joined the Confederacy when the War Between the States broke out and flew that flag for about 5 months in 1862.

Then Union forces gained control and that is how it stands today!

  1. I'll take a stab at it: these flags have flown over the same geographical area at one time, land that belonged to México until the US grabbed it. The answer?
