James Addison Reavis ( – Novem ), later using the name James Addison Peralta-Reavis, the so-called Baron of Arizona, was an American forger and is best known in association with the Peralta land grant, also known as the Barony of Arizona, a pair of fraudulent land claims which, if certified, would have granted him ownership over Born: James Addison Reavis.

The Baron of Arizona is a American Western film directed by Samuel Fuller and starring Vincent Price and Ellen Drew. The film concerns a master forger's attempted use of false documents to lay claim to the territory of Arizona late in the 19th ed by: Samuel Fuller.

"This first edition of The Last Baron of Arizona was produced at the book arts press of Arizona State University, the Pyracantha Press, to contribute to that school's Centennial celebration." The play was first presented by the Arizona State University Department of Theatre at the Lyceum Theatre, March 2,   Published on I disabled comments because I don't want to read about people saying dumb shit about politics.

This video was done FOR SPIRITUAL PURPOSES!!!. This is beyond POLITICS. James Addison Reavis (), a former soldier, teacher, and journalist, saved his best occupation for last—Baron of Arizona. A self-taught forger from his earliest days, he feasted on a main course at the Court of Private Land Claims to the taste of millions of dollars.

The fictitious Peralta was given the title of Baron de los Colorados by King Ferdinand VI inalong with a huge grant of land. The land he claimed was nearly twelve million acres, running through the heart of Arizona extended from today’s Sun City across to Silver City, New Mexico.

For the complete true story, read the book The Baron of Arizona, by E. Cookridge. In the 20th century, Reavis’ phony Peralta genealogy became grafted onto stories of the Lost Dutchman mine in Arizona.

The fictional role of the Peraltas in mining the Superstition mountains near Phoenix is amplified in each retelling of the Lost Dutchman legend. The story itself is engaging, and the characters of Martin and Rosamund are highly sympathetic. The spiritually-tortured Baron Basil is well drawn, as are the gruff warder, Topas and his dangerous mastiff, Lion.
