Cochise & his Apache War – Presentation
April 5, 2014 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am$15
Jack will share with us the exciting story of the Chiricahua Apaches, and their greatest leader, Cochise. Anyone who has ever seen a western movie knows their Hollywood image as fierce and elusive fighters who could disappear at will into the mountains. But our knowledge of them seems to end with the movies. This is your chance to hear the true story of these remarkable people in whose land we live today. Jack will recount the story of Cochise and his war against us, give us details about the Apache culture, describe the relationship with his white blood brother, Tom Jeffords (who was a real man, and is buried in Tucson’s Evergreen Cemetery), and finally tells us what happened to the Chiricahua Apache. $15 per lecture. Please call for reservations, 520-398-2252. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the community effort to “Save the Presidio”.
