Pancho Villa Is Coming

altonhorseAlton Jones and Denman Lewis were good friends when they were young and were known to pull a prank on people. When Pancho Villa was raiding the border towns around 1916 Alton and Denman rode through Orange, New Mexico horseback, shooting their guns in the air shouting, “Pancho Villa is coming”! And then they rode to a high point nearby and observed from a distance the excitement created amongst the town folk of Orange in their wake.

As told to Bobby Jones by Alton Jones
