NDNP New Mexico is funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. After digitizing and creating metadata for approximately one hundred reels of microfilmed newspapers, New Mexico NDNP has completed its 100,000 page goal. Contemporary accounts of many noteworthy historical events in New Mexico history are now readily available online. One such event is General Francisco "Pancho" Villa's cross-border attack on Columbus, New Mexico, an important episode in the Border War spurred by the Mexican Revolution.
