Talk about two of the most deadly epidemics to strike New Mexico by Enrique Lamadrid

New Mexico was a province “remote beyond compare,” in the words of Spanish colonial Governor Diego de Vargas. But geographical isolation was no barrier to epidemics. Two of the most deadly epidemics to strike New Mexico was the smallpox epidemic in the eighteenth century and influenza during World War I. With tragedy comes heroism, as demonstrated by the Niños Héroes de la Vacuna, who bravely transported the smallpox vaccine from Mexico’s interior in 1805.

At 1:30 p.m. this compelling story is presented by Enrique Lamadrid, author of an award winning children’s book Amadito and the Hero Children. This program is co-hosted jointly by the Camino Real de Tierra Adentro Trail Association and the Corrales Historical Association, and is the third in a series commemorating life along this important route.
