I agree! The article was a hit piece to sully conservative white guys from Texas.

I guess we all spin history/herstory.

It appears there were Hispanics and Indians were involved.

"Meanwhile, the leader of the New Mexican volunteers, Lt. Col. Manuel Chaves of the 2nd New Mexico Infantry, informed Chivington that his scouts had detected the Confederate supply train nearby at Johnson's Ranch. After watching them for an hour, Chivington's force descended the slope and attacked, routing or capturing the small baggage-guard with few casualties on either side.[23] They then looted and set afire eighty supply wagons and spiked the cannon, and either killed or drove off five hundred horses and mules before returning to Kozlowski's Ranch.[24] With no supplies with which to sustain his advance, Scurry had no choice but to retreat to Santa Fe, the first step on the long road back to San Antonio, Texas. The Federals thereby stopped further Confederate incursions into the Southwest. Glorieta Pass was the turning point of the war in the New Mexico Territory.

One of Chaves' scouts was Anastasio Duran. Duran was stationed with the Union Army at Fort Union. He was a resident of Chaperito, New Mexico. Duran was considered a "Comanchero" by U.S. Army officers; and was renowned for his hunting skills. He was intimately familiar with the terrain. Duran was the lead scout that led Union forces to attack Confederate forces behind Confederate lines at the Battle of Glorieta Pass."

Lt. Col. Manuel Chavez was a true hero. But on the night march from Santa Fe to Ft. Union on march 4th a entire battalion of New Mexico troops deserted except for Lt. Chavez and a few other officers. According to a Major Donalson who was there. There were some bitter battles fought in New Mexico. There were also some Hispanics that fought on the confederate side. The war in New Mexico did not determine the out come of the civil war .The Union was in no danger of losing the West.
