Billy the Kid & New Mexico's Lincoln County War

 

October 5, 2018



A presentation from the San Juan County Historical Society at their next meeting at the Farmington Gateway Museum, Wednesday, October 10, 2018, at 6 p.m. The public is cordially invited. Farmington Museum Curator Jeffrey Richardson is going to repeat his popular presentation on Billy the Kid.

He lived a short and violent life, but in death, Billy the Kid was transformed from an outlaw into a legend. His story has been told in countless dime novels, movies, television shows, books, and magazines. Despite all the attention, the man behind the myth is still hard to ascertain. The one thing we know for sure is that Billy the Kid was at the center of New Mexico's Lincoln County War, a conflict that exposed the political and economic corruption that defined the era.
