In 1942, the NM State Tourist Bureau comissioned artist Wilfred Stedman to create the map "Battlefields of the Conquistadores in New Mexico."  It displays all (or most) of the battles that were fought on New Mexico soil from the coming of the Spanish through the American occupation.

Attached is a high resolution image of the map that can be downloaded, enlarged, and examined in detail.

    Very interesting but it does not include Josiah Gregg's account (journal) of Spanish settlers fighting a running battle with Navajo's in Agua Fria Village in 1831 after horses were stolen. Josiah Gregg, Commerce of the Prairies, ed. Max L. Moorhead (Norman, 8954)
