Facility:Pancho Villa State Park
Description:On March 9, 1916, soldiers led by Mexican General Francisco "Pancho" Villa attacked the military camp at the sleepy border town of Columbus, New Mexico, killing 18 Americans. This was the only ground invasion of the continental U.S. since 1812.

Pancho Villa State Park's extensive historical exhibits depicting the raid and the U.S. Army's subsequent Punitive Expedition into Mexico are now housed in the park's new $1.8 million 7,000 sq. ft. Exhibit Hall.
