Annotation When the Civil War broke out, Jefferson Davis appointed General Henry Hopkins Sibley to lead an expeditionary force from Texas to seize New Mexico for the Confederacy. Hopes for success ran high after the Confederate victory at the Battle of Val Verde, but ultimately, lacking supplies and reinforcements, the Confederate Army of New Mexico was forced to retreat into West Texas. Sibley's success could have laid the foundations for a Confederate empire in the Southwest and Mexico that might have secured recognition and aid for the South from European nations, altering the eventual outcome of the Civil War.
