In 1880, photographer Ben Wittick captured the image of this important structure — still standing today — used as a hospital on the Glorieta battlefield, March 28, 1862. Sharpshooter’s Ridge is upper right in the picture. Business seems to be booming 18 years after the hostilities there. (Museum of New Mexico, Neg. No. 15783.)
