Civil War — Another State

Several weeks ago I reviewed Civil War in Kansas, one of series of books by different authors about the Civil War on a state and territory level. In the review, I discussed the value of studying history beyond the stories of our own ancestors. Local and world events shaped the course of lives, including our own ancestors, in ways we may never fully appreciate. Reading history can help the genealogist better understand the world in which their ancestors lived. Some of the most enjoyable histories are those written as stories. Like Civil War in Kansas, Civil War in Texas and New Mexico Territory is just such a book.

Civil War in Texas and New Mexico Territory  by Steve Cottrell outlines the conflict of war as it directly affected Texas and the New Mexico Territory, their participation, and the people involved. All the “Civil War in” books in this series share the story style of writing. Cottrell writes this story with skill, captivating the reader from page 1.

The book opens immediately with Texas voting against it Governor’s wishes and joining the Confederacy. The quickly established army immediately took over all U.S. forts and military installations in the state without a single casualty. There is even a story of how Robert E. Lee was nearly held captive, but was permitted to leave the state because a declaration of war had not yet actually been declared. The book continues with story after story about Texas’ and New Mexico’s part in the war. Between the lines of this well-written story lies the facts and interesting detail of the Civil War in the South West and is well worth the time taken to read its pages.

Richardson’s Statement About His Non-Pardon of Billy the Kid

Posted at: 12/31/2010 9:01 AM
By: Governor’s Office

Billy the Kid is not dead.

He was shot through the chest on the night of July 14, 1881 by one of the most famous lawmen of the American Old West. Governor Bill RichardsonHis body fell to the floor, glass-eyed and lifeless. His corpse was buried where it expired, at Fort Sumner, New Mexico, where it lays in a lonely grave to this day—a just and lasting epilogue to a life spent pillaging, ravaging and killing the deserving and the innocent alike.

Yes, Billy the Kid was killed by Pat Garrett in 1881. But The Kid is not dead. Not by a long shot.

He remains very much alive in the culture, history and imaginations of the public to this day. Not just in New Mexico but throughout the country and around the world. This is the message I received during the recent ten days of public comment on the issue of whether or not a pardon was promised but never granted the Kid by territorial governor Lew Wallace, and if so whether I should fulfill such for Henry McCarty/Henry Antrim/William H. Bonney, a/k/a Billy the Kid.

On its surface the question before me is rather simple: Did my predecessor, Governor Lew Wallace, promise a pardon to The Kid for past deeds in return for the latters testimony in a particularly notorious murder trial? If so, and given the fact that The Kid did provide that testimony at great peril to his own life, why was that promise not fulfilled? Should it be? Pretty simple. But as is often the case, what appears simple on the surface can be complex in the depths.

————

If a pardon was offered, it was targeted at The Kids alleged role in the death of William Brady, a sheriff in southern New Billy the KidMexico. It was specific in scope and not prospective. This is a crucial point, as the pardon offer did not cover subsequent events in Billys life such as his killing of two deputies at the Lincoln County Courthouse. No blanket pardon for Billy the Kid was, or is, under consideration.

Having said that, and while there is no smoking gun in the form of, say, a written letter from Wallace to Bonney specifically offering a pardon, a growing preponderance of evidence leans in that direction. This includes subsequent letters from Bonney to Wallace imploring him to keep his end of the bargain; statements and testimony from those with first hand knowledge of the case; media accounts of the day; and published interviews in which Wallace himself seems to confirm this arrangement, or at least his indication to Bonney that a pardon was in the offering. Much of this material is housed in the New Mexico state archives. This is coupled with the fact that there was no pronounced outcry from Wallace when these accounts appeared in the contemporary media, a difficult-to-explain curiosity had Wallace never made that promise.

Its also known that Governor Wallace granted amnesty to other violent criminals of the day including murders, cattle rustlers and highway robbers, in an attempt to bring an end to the bloodshed of the Lincoln County Wars. So it is in keeping with Wallaces prior actions that he would offer a similar pardon to The Kid. This is even more compelling given the extreme danger to The Kid for what he was being asked to provide. Namely, damning testimony against members of the murderous Dolan gang in a trial for the killing of a one-armed lawyer named Chapman. And Billy did provide that testimony, clearly indicating he expected something of great value in return. Given that other than personal vendettas, the overriding threat facing him at that time was the indictment for the Brady killing, the only thing of that value would have been the removal of the threat of prosecution regarding Brady—i.e. a pardon.

All of this strongly indicates that a pardon was in play. Even many strident opponents of a pardon concede this point.

————

So the evidence indicates a pardon was offered to The Kid but never delivered. Pardons were granted to comparable rogues by Governor Wallace. The Kid did testify in the Chapman murder case at great personal peril. In other words, Billy, at least, did his part. It seems pretty simple.

However, pardons are serious business. History is serious business. If one is to re-write a chapter as prominent as this, there had better be certainty as to the facts, the circumstances and the motivations of those involved. While I believe Governor Wallace did promise The Kid a pardon and The Kid did keep his end of the deal I dont know exactly why the pardon was never granted. Who knows what the specifics of their arrangement were? Who knows for sure what, exactly, was promised? Maybe there was more to the deal than just the testimony. Or maybe there were conditions of the pardon being issued that The Kid violated. The point is, I dont know for sure. No one does. And then theres the fact that The Kid killed two more lawmen while escaping capture. That has to weigh in the decision.

Therefore I am not in a position at this time to issue a pardon for Billy the Kid. History lives on.

Hispanic History Fresco Goes on Exhibit in Albuquerque

The following teaser is from an article that was published several days ago, on the eighth of October, in USA Today. I missed it, so am posting it now…

Santa Fe artist Frederico Vigil in front of his latest fresco.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, an epic artwork being unveiled [last] Sunday in Albuquerque speaks volumes.

It took more than nine years of painstaking work, but the 4,400-square-foot fresco depicting the breadth of Hispanic history will officially open for viewing at the city’s National Hispanic Cultural Center.

Billed as the nation’s largest concave fresco, it adorns the 45-foot-high walls and ceiling of the Torreón (tower) at the entrance of the center. It’s the work of Santa Fe artist Frederico Vigil whose epic fresco brings to mind Mexican master muralists such as Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros.

The labor-intensive art of fresco involves painting on wet plaster. And though Vigil had a parade of young artists helping him with the process over the years, he did all of the actual painting.

Titled Mundos de meztizaje, the fresco traces centuries of Hispanic history from the Old World to the New World. It’s meant to be a contemplative space before entering the larger center, a 30-acre complex that houses an art gallery, three theaters and a genealogical library.

Viewing hours are from noon to 4 p.m. Sundays through 2010. Additional hours will be announced for 2011. Admission is free.

New Mexico Newspapers to be Digitized & Available Free Online

I see that more digital newspapers will be coming online at the “Chronicling America” site soon. Now it’s New Mexico papers. Cool…

Following is an excerpt from an article in Michael Kelly, director of the Center of Southwest Research, struggles with one of many archived New Mexican newspapers. The center is beginning to digitally save its entire archived collections. Photo by Vanessa Sanchez the August 16, 2010 edition of the Daily Lobo.

UNM Libraries received a more than $350,000 grant to resurrect hundreds of thousands of New Mexico newspapers, some of which are 150 years old.

The National Endowment for the Humanities awarded UNM Libraries the grant to digitize 100,000 pages from New Mexican newspapers that date between 1860-1922.

Michael Kelly, director for the Center of Southwest research, said a board will select which of UNM’s collection of newspapers will be digitized.

“Since UNM Libraries hold the largest collec­tion of New Mexico news papers on micro­film, we want to take the initiative and make these and other unique resources freely available to every one in New Mexico,” Kelly said, in an Aug. 2 news release.

UNM Libraries employees will make the digitized newspapers available for the Library of Congress’ “Chronicling America” online database as well as a New Mexico’s digital database.

    Twelve new collections were added to the FamilySearch Record Search pilot this week. International collections were added for Argentina, Australia, Mexico, Netherlands, and Spain. New United States collections were added for Delaware, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Rhode Island, and Utah. Happy searching!

    These collections can be searched for free at the FamilySearch.org Record Search pilot (click Search Records, and then click Record Search pilot).

    Special thanks to the growing number of online volunteers who help make these collections freely available by donating their time and talents to the FamilySearch Indexing program.
