The Last Roundup of the "Y" Cattle Co
Thursday, April 9
12:00pm @ Studio 128

The true story of the 1890’s when many of the cattle ranches in Arizona and New Mexico went bankrupt and had to round up and sell their entire herds. John Walter Klump and his three partners drove cattle from Fredericksburg, Texas to the Reserve, NM area in 1885. Over 750 letters and documents were found detailing the two-year roundup, the cowboys, and shipping of their cattle from Magdalena, Geronimo, and Holbrook.
