  3. The Bandit Wars: A Virtual Lecture with Prof. Andy Hernandez

    July 25, 2020, 11:00 AM @ Zoom Meeting ID 825 2200 2786.

    Professor Andy Hernandez will illuminate the Bandit Wars along the U.S.-Mexico border surrounding Pancho Villa’s raid on Columbus, NM in 1916. Violence along the U. S. – Mexico associated with the Plan de San Diego and Pancho Villa’s raid on Columbus are often treated as discrete events. This presentation will explore the connections between Venustiano Carranza’s Machiavellian use of the Plan de San Diego, Villa’s decision to raid Columbus, NM, and the resulting Punitive Expedition and offer a more cohesive understanding of border violence during this period. Andy Hernandez is Professor of History at Western New Mexico University.
