Days Past: Prescott's first 4th of July celebration: No fireworks, no women

Sharlot Hall Museum/Courtesy photo<br>“Downtown” Prescott, circa 1869. If you look closely to the left of the white two-story building, you can see the 144-foot pine flagstaff (no flag on this photo), which was erected in 1864 on the plaza for the first Fourth of July celebration. The two-story white building is the Diana Saloon, which stood on the corner where the Hotel St. Michael stands today.
