Abstract:

The photoprint of the handwritten document by Colonel Albert Jennings Fountain is entitled "Confundis de la Historia del Pintoresco Pueblo de la Mesilla." This description of "the picturesque town of la Mesilla" outlines the role of Mesilla in New Mexican and American history. It describes the settlement of this town by 300 families from what is now Ciudad Juarez and lists assorted families involved in that colonization. The author mentions the building of acequias and the planting of fields which marked that settlement. The author then describes the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo through which the national affiliation of la Mesilla remained vague. Fountain describes the ceremony in which this area was formally recognized as United States territory following the Gadsden Purchase. Also described in Fountain's document is the role Mesilla played in the Civil War. Furthermore, he mentions this town's occupation by the Confederate Army. Finally, he writes of Jacinto Armijo's donation of land in Las Cruces to be used as the new county seat, thus indicating Mesilla's end as such.
