Program Title BECOMING A STATE DIFFERENT: New Mexico's March to Statehood
Program Description New Mexico's March to Statehood could just as easily be called The Stumble to Statehood. New Mexico faced many obstacles, both internal and external, to winning its official status as a state. This lecture, illustrated with photos and documents from the time period, surveys the history of New Mexico's progress from a territory of the U.S. established in 1850 to a state in 1912.
