Many Arizonans were against joint statehood with New Mexico.  This photo, taken in Douglas, Arizona, in 1906, depicts the sentiments of the times.  Carried in the hearse is a sign which says, "Joint -Statehood".  A successful measure on the territorial ballot that year expressed the desire for Arizona to be its own state, leading some to believe the joint statehood movement was dead.
