It was the first invasion of 11 p t-__u._.. _»-- «.,, Tir«_ ~c V.O. I ^ I A I W I J all-CX U1C V T tU VI 1812, and a similar event was not to occur until Japan bombed Pearl Harbor in 1941. Pancho Villa and his raiding party of 485 men set off one of the most bizarre and controversial military campaigns in U.S. history. After 11 months of bitter frustration, the U.S. troops, led by Gen. John J. (Black Jack) Pershing, were recalled from pursuit of Villa only a few weeks before America's entry into World War I. Pershing was sent to Columbus by President Woodrow Wilson with orders to cross the Mexico- U.S. border just south of Columbus. The troops were to capture Viila and disperse his marauders. Seventeen of 21 persons killed in the Columbus raid were Americans. One account of the raid said it was a guerrilla operation for needed supplies. Villa and several friends were killed from ambush in 1923 while riding in an open car in Hidalgo del Parral, Mexico. His widow. Dona Luz, is believed living in Chihuahua City, Mexico. Today, Columbus still Is a dusty, desert town with ambitions to attract retirement- age people to settle there. The community of about 250 inhabitants has no blare of horns, no roar of traffic and no smog. It has but a handful of telephones. There is, however, a restaurant-bar called the Pink Pony. A small museum houses mementoes of the raid. Nearly seven years ago, the New Mexico government dedicated Pancho Villa State Park near the adjacent Mexican border town of Palomas. The park was named after Villa to commemorate the bloody battle, but residents of Columbus and other communities in Luna County planned no lOriiia! observance of the 50lu anniversary. Cotton, maize and cattle were the big money items in the area 50 years ago. The railroad which carried the commodities was allowed to abandon Columbus in 1961. Columbus boasts it is "the town that refused to die." But the state park and tourist traffic is about its only business today. Bovs Ranch j i ElftC The Rev.
