In 1872 General Oliver Otis Howard and his secretary Captain Joseph Sladen undertook a daring and perilous journey into the Dragoon Mountains to make peace with the famous and dreaded Apache chief Cochise. Their courage brought about an end to the war the Chiricahua Apaches had waged since 1861. Re-enactor Andy Gould as Joseph Sladen will tell the exciting story of this history-changing adventure and how Sladen’s two weeks with the Apache on their own terms changed his perception of them.
