May 27, 2014 • Local News

Genora Canon, regent of the Roswell chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, recently presented a copy of Rush Limbaugh’s “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans” to Washington Avenue Elementary School librarian Gloria Lucero. Also pictured is school principal Ron Tidmore. Canon, also the vice regent of the state Daughters of the American Revolution, said a copy of each of the books was being given to every elementary school in Roswell. “Our purpose is the preservation of history, as well as education,” Canon said. She said copies of Dr. Walter Earl Pittman’s “New Mexico and the Civil War” were being donated by the DAR to all of Roswell’s middle and high schools. “A lot of people don’t know the Civil War took place in New Mexico,” Canon said. “Quite a lot of the Civil War took place here — more battles than people would think.” (Jeff Tucker Photo)
