Apache Tactics Here in the Southwest
February 28, 2015 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am$15
Presentation by Jack Lasseter
This is not about the people and the events during the Apache Wars. This talk is about the tactics of one of Arizona’s most feared enemies. The Apache could strike out of nowhere with no warning, then disappear back into the mountains to unexpectedly strike again. They were outnumbered and outgunned by the Spanish, the Mexicans, and later the Americans. Never conquered by Spain or Mexico, it took the Americans twenty-five years to subdue them. How did the Apache do it? Jack covers it all: their kinds of raids, ambushes, and their clever avoidance and survival techniques. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served. $15 per lecture. Please call for reservations and future dates, 520-398-2252. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the community effort to “Save the Presidio.”
