THE BATTLE OF NOGALES: MOTIVATIONS & ORIGINS
August 23, 2018Free
The Consulate General of Mexico and Border Community Alliance cordially invite you to the conference “The Battle of Nogales: Motivations & Origins”, by Nogales native and former Director of Pimeria Alta Museum – Axel C. F. Holm
100 years ago a battle took place in Nogales on the US-Mexico border. Since this was during WWI, intriguing questions persist: What actually took place? Were Germans involved? Why did President Wilson order 100,000 national guardsman to the border after Pancho Villa’s raid on Columbus, NM?
The conference will take place at Salón Bicentenario in the Consulate General of Mexico on Thursday August 23, 2018, from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. Free admission. Conference to be directed in English.
