Friends of History Lecture Series (Online)
New Mexico History Museum
12:00 PM - 12:00 PM
Sam Adams: An African American Civil War Veteran and his New Mexican Life

Please join Hannah Abelbeck, Photo Archivist, with the New Mexico History Museum, for an online talk featuring Sam Adams, an African American Civil War veteran who later settled in New Mexico, as part of our Friends of History lecture series.

The presentation will put Adams in context with his contemporaries and explores the difficulty of looking for information about minor and overlooked historical figures whose stories usually aren’t center stage.

Hannah Abelbeck is the Photo Archivist in the Palace of the Governors Photo Archives department at the New Mexico History Museum. She has a BA in English and Art History from the University of Kansas and an MA in English from Penn State University, and she’s worked with special collections archives at both universities. She researches Southwestern (especially New Mexican) photographers, documentary and vernacular photography, cultural movements, and histories of gender and sexuality. At NMHM, she is working on increasing digital access to the museum’s vast photo collections.
