LINCOLN, N.M. (AP) - Historian Frederick Nolan is giving a speech about Billy the Kid in a southern New Mexico community where the famed outlaw participated in the Lincoln County War.

Nolan is to speak Tuesday at the Lincoln Historic Site, a state monument that includes buildings such as the old Lincoln County Courthouse where the Kid was held as a prisoner but escaped in 1881.

The state Cultural Affairs Department said Nolan is the first historian-in-residence at the historic site under a new program sponsored by the Museum of New Mexico Foundation.

Nolan has written several books about the Kid and the Lincoln County War.

His speech is at 2 p.m. in the San Juan Mission in Lincoln.
