Denver Latina Historian Virginia Sanchez, author of Pleas and Petitions: Hispano Culture and Legislative Conflict in Territorial Colorado

Virginia Sánchez, a Denver historian, has presented to numerous audiences including the Western Historical Society, New Mexico Historical Society, Pikes Peak Posse of the Westerners, and various Colorado museums and genealogical societies. Her many articles have been published by Colorado and New Mexico magazines such as Colorado Water, Colorado Heritage, New Mexico Magazine and the New Mexico Historical Review. In 2019, one of her co-authored articles, published by the New Mexico Historical Review, received an award for best article of the year.  In 2022 she was awarded a grant by the New Mexico Historical Society and the Hulbert Center for Southwest Studies at Colorado College awarded her a Fellowship. 

Ms. Sánchez will explain how and why New Mexico lost its northern territory when the U.S. Congress created Colorado Territory in 1861. She will also discuss the political obstacles, cultural conflicts, and prejudice experienced by Hispano representatives to the Colorado Territorial Legislature, and how the lives of 7,000 Spanish-speaking, U.S. citizens were impacted by this congressional act.
