WE’RE BACK!

Welcome to the Taos Connection <thetaosconnection.com>!  This blog is dedicated to the person and legacy of Padre Antonio José Martinez,Cura de Taos (1793-1867).  It used to be on AOL Journals until that ceased to operate.  I have retrieved these web logs, and am in the process of editing and posting.  Come back when there is more.  Enough for now.

Blog about Padre Antonio José Martínez, Cura de Taos. When he died, his peers in the USA Territorial Assembly for NM wrote on his epitaph, "La Honra de Su País" – The Honor of His Homeland. The last decade of his life–in the years following the American occupation– was clouded by controversy with his new bishop. Fray Angelioc Chavez in My Penitente Land called him "New Mexico's greatest son." This blog is dedicated to the life and legacy of this priest, educator, printer-publisher, lawyer-politician, rancher, patriot.
