The young outlaw known as Billy the Kid spent the winter of 1880-1881 in Santa Fe-trying desperately to get out of its jail. He hired lawyers. He wrote the governor. He even tried digging his way out! Nothing worked. Billy only "escaped" the "safest jail in the Territory" in March 1881, when deputies finally escorted him to the railroad station for a trip to southern New Mexico-where a jury of his peers waited to convict him of murder. But just where was this invincible Santa Fe jail? Today, in Santa Fe, two plaques mark the spot, or rather, two competing spots . . . Lynn Michelsohn tracks down historical sources to identify the long-disputed location of Billy the Kid's Santa Fe jail and to provide this brief glimpse of life in the Wild West on the Southwestern Frontier. (10,000 words; 16 photographs, drawings, and maps) Recommended for Western history buffs, Billy the Kid aficionados, and anyone who loves Santa Fe.
Santa In A Stetson â€” Rebecca Winters
The history of the walking dead is a long one. Since before man walked the Earth, the dead have been with us. Rotting, decrepit animated corpses have existed, and in many places, have helped create the evolution of the very history we all know as fact, but yet they have always remained hidden from mankind as the sands of time flowed through the hour glass. From Egypt, to London, to the first moon landing, to the old West; zombies have been a part of our culture, our very lives, though each time it has been erased, eradicated from our history. Perhaps in these lost tales of our past is the hope for our future. In these stories might very well be the answers of what to do when the zombie apocalypse finally arrives. So read these tales quickly and learn from them. For even in the past, the dead walk, and if they did once before, it's a fact they will do so again. The only question is: When will that be and will you be prepared? With stories by Tony Schaab, Jose Alfredo Vazquez, David Bernstein, Mark Rivett, T.W. Brown, Nickolas Cook, Mark M. Johnson, Spencer Wendleton, Eric S. Brown, Anthony Giangregorio, Kevin James Breaux, G.R. Mosca and Lee Clark Zumpe,
