Offered through Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at UAH

For over 25 years, the American military was involved in a supreme struggle with the Apaches for control of the American Southwest. At one point in time, over one-fourth of the entire American Army was involved in this campaign that perhaps began with the kidnapping of a 12-year-old boy and ended with the imprisonment in Florida, Alabama, and Oklahoma of the Apache leadership and their families. This course will discuss the politics and battles as well as the personalities including Geronimo, the Apache Kid, Mickey Free, Cochise as well Generals Crook and Miles.
