Brown Bag Lunch Presentation
The Grant County Rebellion of 1876
with Melvyn Gelb
Thursday, March 5, 12 noon - 1:00pm
Silver City Museum Annex, 302 W. Broadway
By 1876, the people of Silver City/Grant County felt powerless and neglected by the political cliques that controlled New Mexico and Santa Fe. Their reaction was a declaration of independence, which would allow them to secede from New Mexico and become part of the state of Arizona. This talk will cover who was involved, why it happened, and what the outcome was. FYI: we are still part of New Mexico! Melvyn Gelb has been a resident of Silver City for 16 years. He is a retired Public Health Nurse/New Mexico Department of Health, and diabetes educator.
