Abstract

Because of her long history, far more tumultuous and varied than that of the other territories; and her culture, so different from all the rest of the United States, New Mexico was the most intriguing and challenging of the western territories. Modern American history has paralleled this unique past by showing that New Mexico, along with her sister territory Arizona, fought the longest and most complex battle for statehood. In the 1880's New Mexico was one of the many territories in the western domain in the United States. In fact, statehood in the west was the exception rather than the rule.
