More About This Book

Overview

Alexander Grzelachowski: Book II is being written as a follow-up to Alexander Grzelachowski: Puerto de Luna's Renaissance Man published in June 2012. The author is Grzelachowski's great-grandson, Daniel Flores, who grew up in Puerto de Luna in his grandparents' residence. His grandmother was Leticia Grzelachowski Padilla. His grandparents lived across the street from his parents, Benny and Tina Flores. The young Flores would help his elderly grandparents with household chores.

Growing up in his grandmother's household, Flores had the opportunity to hear many of her reminisces about her father. She would relate stories about her father with great pride.

Book II includes much new information about Grzelachowski that was not included in the original Grzelachowski book. Included in Book II is a section about the village of Puerto de Luna in the days of Grzelachowski. The community was once very prosperous and served as the original county seat of Guadalupe county.

New information is also included about Grzelachowski's immigration to the United States in 1850. Information from the ship's manifest of the passengers, who crossed the Atlantic on their voyage to America, helps document his journey. Grzelachowski crossed with a group of priests and nuns who were coming to help propagate their Catholic faith in the United States.

Additional information is also included about Grzelachowski's military role as a military chaplain during the Confederate invasion of New Mexico in 1862. Grzelachowski not only saw action at Glorieta but was also involved in the Battle of Valverde and the Battle of Peralta.

Flores also has an expanded section of the Grzelachowski family and includes a vignette about each of the eight Grzelachowski offspring. The section is illustrated with family photographs, though photographs were not available for all of Grzelachowski's children.
