Tammy Snook toured the Yuma Quartermaster Depot State Historic Park in Yuma, Arizona. For nearly 20 years, beginning in 1864, the U.S. Army used the depot to store and distribute supplies for military posts in Arizona, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico and Texas. The Army also kept a six-month supply of clothing, food, ammunition and other goods at all times. The site is now a 10-acre park, which also includes exhibits describing the engineering used to bring irrigation to the Yuma Valley in 1912.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2013 LCV Cities Tour” in Yuma, Arizona on April 1-4 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Time Warner Cable local cable affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
