Espinosa Brothers

After the Mexican-American War many New Mexicans felt dissatisfaction with the state of affairs that arose within the Hispanic communities of Northern New Mexico.

Visit the New Mexico Office of the State Historian webpage to read an essay I wrote on Felipe Nerio Espinosa and his family and how they reacted to the state of affairs of that time period.


You can also read my essay “The Espinosa Brothers – A Clash of Cultures” in the July 2013 ~ Volume 21 Issue 3 of the HGRC Journal.

    Great story of the Espinosa Brothers fighting for what rightfully their land, and protecting for the family.
