Jacob B. 'Billy' Mathews performed a leading role in what is arguably the most notorious chapter in the history of the American West: New Mexico's Lincoln County War of the 1870s. In carrying out orders from some of the primary figures in the conflict, namely J.J. 'Jimmy' Dolan or Sheriff William Brady, Mathews took part in pactically all of the significant events of the war.

What is known about his life before the Lincoln County War is quite meager, and much of what has been published about him is incorrect. The author seeks to rectify the inaccuracies as well as to provide new information on his life both before and after the Lincoln County War.

Mathews' primary claim to fame is that he was the sheriff's chief deputy in command of the posse that shot down John Henry Tunstall on February 18, 1878, thereby igniting the most celebrated event in Lincoln County's history. In one aspect, he is unique among all of the participants in this conflict--he survived the war and lived to die a natural death of old age.

After the Lincoln conflict, Mathews became a distinguished pioneer in the establishment of big-time cattle ranching in the Peasco Valley and farming in the Pecos Valley of Southeast New Mexico

This competently written expanded journal article about a member, "Billy" Mathews, of the Murphy-Dolan-Riley faction in the Lincoln County War concentrates on filling in Mathews early life including his Civil War service with the Union Army in Tennessee and then his post-Lincoln County War life as husband, father, homesteader, rancher, investor, and postmaster near and around Roswell, New Mexico. Mr. Fleming, however, airbrushes much of Mathews deadly participation in the affrays of Lincoln County minimizing his culpability in the assassination of John Tunstall, the killing that kicked off the Lincoln County War, as well as giving scant attention to his accessory status in at least two other Lincoln County War shootings, one of which resulted in his indictment by a grand jury that was simply ignored by a Murphy partisan District Attorney. Mathews was at the center of enough Murphy mayhem that Pat Garrett and Sue McSween recalled that Billy the Kid said he was aiming at Deputy Mathews not Sheriff Brady when the "Regulators" gunned down the Sheriff and Deputy Hindman on the streets of Lincoln. Mr. Fleming's portrait emphasizes Mathews "adventuring" life as a 19th century soldier, miner, rancher, businessman, investor, and postmaster. But we're left with little sense of how that "adventurer" became so closely intertwined for important years of his adult life with questionable, ofttimes murderous characters and activities.

Excellent book on a little known Lincoln County, New Mexico, lawman. Book gives a good insight as to the Lincoln County war before and after, and the story of a man who survived it and lived to be an old man. Good Book all around. I recommend for anyone interested in the Lincoln County War in New Mexico.
