New Mexioco History and Legends

Guest Author - Debra Conrad

Taos New Mexco HistoryNew Mexico Historical events are important. Why? Because they did help shape the Southwest United States.

New Mexico boarders Mexico... and many land scuffles occourd on what is now New Mexico soil... but was once part of a land dispute between the U.S. and Mexico governments.

How much of this New Mexico history do you remember from your history class? Not much? That's not a surprise... as it is often neglected or replaced by such topics as the Civil War and the World Wars... but it is part of our history nonetheless.

In an effort to preserve and promote the legends of New Mexico's history... the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs has begun posting fantastic audio recordings of these events.

The audio renditions are done in a fairly dramatic fashion... and capture the listeners attention by using music and very good vocal personalities.

The audio's are short... usually 3 or 4 minutes. Just enough to give you an overview of the subject... without creating an urgent need to hit the stop button. Using the mp3 format... they are easily listened to right from your computer.

Some of the subjects covered are:

  • The Sante Fe Trail
  • The Butterfield Trail
  • Amelia Earhart in Hobbs
  • The U.S. Camel Corps.
  • Pancho Villa Invades New Mexico
  • Elizabeth Garrett - The Songbird of the Southwest
  • Kokopelli- The humpback flute player

Historic preservation isn't just about buildings. It's about saving the historical events and legends in a format that will last generations... and prevent the loss of unique parts of history that are so small they can get lost in the dark halls of dusty shelved archives or forever forgotten as our ancestors pass on.
