Hardship, Greed and Sorrow: An Officer’s Photo Album of 1866 New Mexico Territory
Please join us for a talk by author Devorah Romanek, and joined by Hannah Abelbeck, New Mexico History Museum Photo Archivist, and Jennifer Nez Dennetdale, Associate Professor of American Studies, University of New Mexico, on this compelling book which captures a fraught and complex moment in the history of the American Southwest.
In the aftermath of the Civil War, the New Mexico Territory endured painful years of hardship and ongoing strife. During this turbulent period, a US military officer stationed in the territory assembled an album of photographs, a series of still shots taken by one or more anonymous photographers. Now, some 150 years later, this remarkable volume reproduces the anonymous officer’s “souvenir album” in its totality.
Offering an important glimpse of the American Southwest in the mid-1860s, the photo album places the photographs in historical context in connection to the Civil War and Reconstruction periods, including the French intervention in New Mexico and the internment of Navajos at the Bosque Redondo Indian Reservation.
In addition to containing what may be the earliest extant photographs of Navajo Indians, the album features both studio and field images of U.S. Army officers, Mexican politicians, and various sites throughout New Mexico.
Books for purchase will be made available from the Museum Foundation shop, located in the History Museum.

NHCC & Opera Southwest Present Daniel Catan’s Il Postino
Opera Southwest presents Daniel Catán’s Il Postino, a fully staged opera with orchestra, sung in Spanish with both Spanish and English translation supertitles, and presented in two acts with one intermission.
Presented in partnership with the National Hispanic Cultural Center, Il Postino is based on the novel Ardiente Paciencia by Antonio Skármeta, as well as the film by Michael Radford. When exiled Chilean poet Pablo Neruda arrives on a tiny Italian island, he receives so much fan mail that Mario is hired as his personal postman. Mario soon becomes Neruda’s student, learning the art of poetry to woo a local barmaid. Inspired by Neruda, Mario’s poetic voice continues to take wing as he expresses the struggles of his fellow working class villagers. A firm friendship develops, and the postman is forever a changed man.
$19, $39, $59, $79, $99; discounts for groups of eight or more and patrons 30 and younger.
