1. Number of ConfederateSoldiers buried in the Old Town Plaza
I am a retired Physician who lived in Albuquerque from July 1963 until April 1975. I have a life-long interest in the Civil War and especially the events in New Mexico. The Old Town Plaza, before its renovation in the 1970s, had a marker in the northeast corner that stated that beneath the site were buried

five Confederate Soldiers, side by side. When the renovation was completed in the 1970's—the marker disapeared. Repeated requests to return the marker showing where these brave boys were buried fell on deaf ears. Not until many years later the Sons of Confederate Veterans received permission to place the plaques that are now in the Old Town Plaza. But to me,this does not give proper respect to these soldiers. There needs to be a plaque where they rest TODAY.
