National New Mexico Day is supported by the state government. This day features various festivals and educational events, where you can learn more interesting information about the history of the state.

The first appearance of Europeans in what is now New Mexico dates back to the 1500s. Ancient legends tell of a great deal of treasure hidden here, so over time the interest of the colonists increased, and the land itself continued to be developed.

In 1609 Pedro de Peralta became governor and in fact New Mexico came under Spanish control. It later gained independence, but in 1821 became part of the Mexican possessions.

In 1846, a bloody story began when war broke out between the United States and Mexico. After the victory of the American army, the territory came under U.S. control, but the civil war continued there. Peace did not come until 1886, and New Mexico was declared an official state in 1912.
