Abstract

In writing this play, I have tried to avoid the emphasis usually placed upon Billy the Kid. Most of the books and articles on the Lincoln County War have dealt extensively ( and without too great a regard for the truth) with his exploits, and there seemed little to be gained in re-telling the story from the same old angle. It appeared to me that a far more promising field was the one offered by the Spanish-American element in Lincoln and the effect of the war upon them: hence the decision to make Ygenic Salazar my pivotal figure.
