The Border Vidette will be posted quarterly or semi-annually, depending on the volume of material. This is a spot for longer articles. Again Word, single-spaced, with minimum formatting and endnotes. Photos should be JPG and should be your own or pre-1925. We want stories of Tombstone, Southern Arizona, the Southern Overland and Santa Fe Trail, the Wild West, and the Frontier. With anything I have to edit for the Border Vidette, I will send copies back to the author for proofing.
A Vidette is a mounted sentinel. This was the term used by the US Cavalry in the 19th Century.
