This image was taken overlooking the approximate location of the Camp Lordsburg barracks in which my ojiichan lived from June 1942 until June 1943.
I owe a debt of gratitude to local historian and teacher Mrs. Mollie Pressler. She has generously shared decades of research, a bounty of archival materials, and acted as a guide and fixer during my time in Lordsburg.
Lordsburg, NM is located on traditional Chiricahua Apache land. New Mexico is home to 23 sovereign indigenous nations.
