Lordsburg is mentioned in old Westerns. Was the pony express connected or what other event made it notable?
Welcome to the forum. Lordsburg wasn't on the Pony Express trail but was on the Southern Pacific Railroad and the Butterfield Stagecoach line. It became a travel hub because it was the intersection of 2 highways but that changed with the coming of I-10. It was also in the westerns, as you mentioned. The most famous being Stagecoach with John Wayne.
wickepedia also has some good information on Lordsburg.
