This year marks the 168th anniversary of the start of the Mexican War, a major event in our regional and national history. By the Kearny conquest of 1846, New Mexico passed into the hands of the United States. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, 1848, confirmed the acquisition.

Among my papers is a photocopy of a small newspaper called The Anglo Saxon, published at Chihuahua City on Saturday, April 3, 1847. The original is in the collections of the Museum of New Mexico.
