Elfego Baca Memorial“I will show the Texans that there is at least one Mexican in this country who is not afraid of an American cowboy.”
In October 1884, eighty Texan cowboys came to wreak havoc on the sleepy little Hispanic community of Frisco. One man, 19-year-old Elfego Baca, singehandedly subdued the cowboys in a 3-day shoot-out with more than 4,000 bullets shot
and changed the course of history.
Learn about the life and times of this unsung hero, Elfego Baca, and view his memorial statue in the Downtown Plaza (formerly known Frisco Plaza) in Reserve, NM.
