Colfax County, located in the great state of New Mexico, has a rich and fascinating history. The county was established on January 25, 1869, and was named after Schuyler Colfax, the 17th Vice President of the United States who served under President Ulysses S. Grant. The county seat is Raton, while other important communities include Cimarron, Springer, and Angel Fire.

The region's history dates back to the Native American tribes, such as the Ute and Jicarilla Apache, that inhabited the area for centuries. The arrival of European explorers and the Spanish colonization brought significant changes to the region. In the 19th century, the Santa Fe Trail, an important commercial and transportation route connecting Missouri and Santa Fe, passed through the county, playing a crucial role in its development.

Colfax County witnessed notable events in American history, such as the Colfax County War that occurred between 1873 and 1888. This conflict arose over land grant disputes, and involved various groups like land speculators, cattle barons, and the U.S. government. The climax of the war occurred in 1884 with the Battle of Cimarron, which resulted in the cattlemen's victory and largely put an end to the violence.

One fun fact about Colfax County is its connection to the infamous outlaw, Black Jack Ketchum. In 1899, Ketchum and his gang attempted to rob a train near Folsom, a small village in the county. However, Ketchum was wounded and captured during the failed robbery, and eventually met his end in Clayton, where he was executed by hanging in 1901. His is the only recorded case of a judicial train robbery execution in New Mexico's history.
