    The U.S. Territorial Period (1848-1912
    edited with introduction by Richard Melzer
    In collaboration with the Historical Society of New Mexico

    Sunshine and Shadows in New Mexico’s Past has one main goal: to reveal the sharp contrasts in New Mexico history. As with all states, New Mexico has had its share of admirable as well as deplorable moments, neither of which should be ignored or exaggerated at the other’s expense. New Mexico’s true character can only be understood and appreciated by acknowledging its varied history, blemishes and all. There are three volumes in this series.
    Volume II covers the U.S. Territorial Period from 1848 to 1912, including chapters on the early Territorial Period, the Civil War in New Mexico, Religion, Cultural Encounters, Lawlessness, the Military, Ranching, the Railroad, and Politics and the Drive for Statehood.
