John H. Tunstall: Murder Site Historic Marker
Glencoe, Lincoln County, New Mexico

In one of the Lincoln County War’s earliest violent encounters, John H. Tunstall was shot and killed at a nearby site on February 18, 1878. Tunstall’s death set off a series of violent reprisals between his friends, among whom was William “Billy the Kid” Bonney, and forces of the Murphy/Dolan faction of the tragic conflict. Tunstall, an English businessman, came to New Mexico in 1876.

The John H. Tunstall: Murder Site Historic Marker is on U.S. 70 at milepost 273.5, on the right when traveling east.
