About 100 extras, mostly Bisbee residents, were at Warren Ballpark on Sunday to portray the people rounded up and gathered at that same Warren Ballpark during the 1917 Great Deportation, 100 years ago.

According to the University of Arizona University Libraries, The Bisbee Deportation occurred on July 12, 1917. On that day, roughly 1,200 men were herded into boxcars by an armed vigilante force and were abandoned across the New Mexico border, the website said.
