Pecos NHP declines to display plaque honoring individual Hispanic Civil War fighter

It will be up to the New Mexico National Guard Museum in Santa Fe to tell the story of the Hispanic hero of the Civil War.

A bronze plaque commemorating Manuel A. Chaves for his role in turning back the Confederate invasion of New Mexico in 1862 was recently cast with the intention of placing it between existing monuments to Texas and Colorado soldiers who participated in the Battle of Glorieta Pass.
