Oury was a big mover and shaker before the war in the Tucson region.

He was the one of the big reasons the Confederate Territory of Arizona formed.

Around the time Oury became a delegate he was also in the militia. Over 200 Apaches attacked the town of Tubac and later the town of Presidio. Oury and a small band of Confederate Militia from Tucson rescued the settlers. Another biograpny of Oury states thst he resigned his seat in the Confederate Congress to serve as Captain in Herbert's Battalion. I was led to believe he did not resign , he lost the special and disputed election.
