The war between the U.S.A. and Mexico in 1846 was a world event that shaped the destiny of both nations. New Mexico was impacted directly, as it went from being part of the new nation of Mexico to being a U.S. territory, and ultimately, a U.S. state. In this presentation, State Historian Rob Martinez will discuss the causes of the conflict and examine the fallout from those events, as well as the impact on New Mexico history specifically.

Tertulia Histórica Albuquerque: UnRaveling: Pancho Villa and Sam Ravel: An Encounter During the Infamous 1916 Raid on Columbus

February 20

2 pm (MST)

Live Via Zoom

Register in advance HERE

For more than a century scholars have debated why Pancho Villa attacked the border town of Columbus, New Mexico on March 9, 1916—a deadly incursion and the only time in the 20th century that a major foreign army invaded the continental United States. For Stacey Ravel Abarbanel, the battle is the context for a family tale so spectacular that she always wondered if it was true: when Villa raided the village he was looking to kill her grandfather, Sam Ravel.
