Excerpt from New Mexico Historical Review, Vol. 25: January, 1950 Though it is doubtful that the Mescalero paid much at tention to the dissensions of a political nature among those who had settled on their lands, still such happenings were to affect them profoundly in the future. In 1835 Texas de clared itself a republic but was not recognized as such by Mexico.16 During the next few years the Texas Rangers equipped themselves with Colt revolving pistols,17 the Six Shooters which figure largely from that time on in Mescalero as well as American accounts of wars and feuds.

Excerpt from New Mexico Historical Review, 1955, Vol. 30 There Is no reason to question the basic accuracy of this statement. Of course it differs as to the date of the grant's origin and the name of the claimant given in the title papers and mentioned above. But it is possible to explain the differ ence in names in either one of two ways. First would be the fact that Charles Beaubien did acquire sole title to the grant under tragic circumstances, for in the Taos Revolt of J anu ary 1847, both Narciso Beaubien and Stephen L. Lee were killed. So, by inheritance from his son and purchase from Lee's estate, Charles Beaubien Obtained ownership of the grant. On the other hand, Charles may have been considered the principal original owner, for the grant papers are drawn up chiefly in his own handwriting, including his son's Signa ture, and his son was only 13 years old when the grant reputedly was made At that time, Charles was part owner of the Beaubien and Miranda grant, and so prob ably did not want to apply in his own name for a second grant.

General Richard Stoddert Ewell holds a unique place in the history of the Army of Northern Virginia. For four months Ewell was Stonewall Jackson's most trusted subordinate; when Jackson died, Ewell took command of the Second Corps, leading it at Gettysburg, the Wilderness, and Spotsylvania Court House. In this biography, Donald Pfanz presents the most detailed portrait yet of the man sometimes referred to as Stonewall Jackson's right arm. Drawing on a rich array of previously untapped original source materials, Pfanz concludes that Ewell was a highly competent general, whose successes on the battlefield far outweighed his failures. But Pfanz's book is more than a military biography. It also examines Ewell's life before and after the Civil War, including his years at West Point, his service in the Mexican War, his experiences as a dragoon officer in Arizona and New Mexico, and his postwar career as a planter in Mississippi and Tennessee. In all, Pfanz offers an exceptionally detailed portrait of one of the South's most important leaders.

Women of the New Mexico Frontier, 1846-1912is a collection of essays that include biographical sketches and writings from women of all walks of life who helped bring about the Americanization of the New Mexico Territory, from the Mexican War until statehood in 1912. These women were wives of missionaries, soldiers and military officers, and government officials who came from the eastern part of the United States. For this edition, Cheryl Foote has provided a new Introduction, which highlights information uncovered since the book's original publication in 1990. "Throughout, Foote does not shy away from sensitive topics, including alcoholism, domestic violence, and prostitution. . . . She has unearthed some women's documents that were either unknown or have been overlooked, and she has encouraged others to delve into southwestern women's history."--Glenda Riley, Alexander M. Bracken Professor Emeritus of History, Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana "Battered wives, Presbyterian missionaries, army laundresses--these are the people that Cheryl Foote presents in Women of the New Mexico Frontier. Even though she restricted her portraiture to Anglo-American women, Foote still found individuals about whom we usually know too little. For example, a particular strength of this book is the new dimension it brings to our understanding of army women."--The Journal of Arizona History "Foote's book is based on careful research, and it brings to our attention the lives and work of obscure but nonetheless significant women."--The Western Historical Quarterly

Chicano Catholicism—both as a popular religion and a foundation for community organizing—has, over the past century, inspired Chicano resistance to external forces of oppression and discrimination including from other non-Mexican Catholics and even the institutionalized church. Chicano Catholics have also used their faith to assert their particular identity and establish a kind of cultural citizenship. Based exclusively on original research and sources, Mario T. García here offers the first major historical study to explore the various dimensions of the role of Catholicism in Chicano history in the twentieth century. This is also one of the first significant studies in the still limited field of Chicano religious history. Topics range from how early Chicano Catholic intellectuals and civil rights leaders were influenced by Catholic Social Doctrine, to the role that popular religion has played in the lives of ordinary men and women in both rural and urban areas. García also examines faith-based Chicano community movements like Católicos Por La Raza in the 1960s and the Sanctuary movement in Los Angeles in the 1980s. While Latino/a history and culture has been, for the most part, inextricably linked with the tenets and practices of Catholicism, there has been very little written, until recently, about Chicano Catholic history. García helps to fill that void and explore the impact—both positive and negative—that the Catholic experience has had on the Chicano community.
