New Mexico is one of my favorite places. The two landmarks I prefer to talk about the most in New Mexico are the towns of Cimmaron and Folsom. Cimmaron is near the Colorado border and is the site where Buffalo soldiers got into a gunfight with gangsta' cowboys in 1876. Folsom is the site where Black Cowboy George Mcjunkin had the hobby of collecting "strange bones" on the ranch he worked on. His dig site produced the evidence for the "Folsom Man" era of North American human habitation. New Mexico Buffalo soldier actions were one of the testing grounds for Posse Comitatus laws as they were often used as law enforcement during the Lincoln County and Colfax County range wars. Of course this was also the time of reconstruction in the South and the use of Federal troops was already an issue. You may find descendants of Buffalo soldiers still living in New Mexico as several stayed after leaving the army.
