Jesus Bazán and Antonio Longoria Marker Dedication Ceremony

 Collection
Identifier: BD-0008

Scope and Contents

The collection consists of images and recordings of the Jesus Bazán and Antonio Longoria marker dedication ceremony. This marker commemorates the double murder of Jesus Bazán and his son-in-law, Antonio Longoria, on September 27, 1915 along a dirt road near their ranch outside of Edinburg.

In October 2017, the Refusing to Forget the team unveiled the first historical marker in Cameron County to recognize the unknown victims of La Matanza (The Massacre) in 1915. The Jesus Bazán and Antonio Longoria marker is the second. There are plans for two more marker unveilings, one in Webb County for the civil rights pioneer Jovita Idar, and the other in Presidio County to designate the site of the Porvenir Massacre in 1918.
