Elfego Baca Stamp sign now

Elfego Baca (1865 - 1945), was a legendary lawman, lawyer, and politician in the closing days of the American 'Wild West'. His goal in life, was to be a peace-officer. He once said that "I want the outlaws to hear my steps a block away." One of the more spectacular events of Elfego Baca's life, was the 1884 'Frisco Shoot-out'. Elfego Baca took refuge in an adobe house, and held off 80 cowboys, who shot thousands of bullets into the house. Incredibly, Elfego was not hit by a single bullet. Elfego Baca held a number of public offices; among them, county clerk, mayor, and school-superintendent of Socorro County. In Leon Metz's book, "The Shooters", Metz writes that 'most reports say he [Baca], was the best peace-officer Socorro ever had. In 1912, Elfego Baca ran unsuccessfully for Congress as a Republican, but remained an influential political figure. Elfego Baca was one of our great Hispanic-Americans.
