Description

Abraham Lincoln spoke very little about the far western territory of New Mexico. Yet, during his presidency, two different wars were fought here and the territory’s landmass was divided in half. Lincoln signed into law legislation that would eventually aid in the settlement and development of New Mexico. New Mexico has a county, town, range of mountains and national forest named in his honor.

New Mexico State University Professors Christopher Schurtz and Dr. Dwight Pitcaithley describe Lincoln’s connection to the New Mexico Territory.
