Special Talk: Cochise by Jack Lasseter
January 16, 2016 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am$15
Cochise – Special Presentation by Jack Lasseter, Saturday, January 16, 2 pm
Jack will tell the exciting story of Cochise, the Chiricahua Apaches’ greatest leader. We will learn about the man himself, about the famous Bascom Affair that precipitated his 11-year war with the U.S. Jack also addresses the tactics that made him so successful in war, and describes Cochise’s relationship with his American blood-brother Tom Jeffords (a real man who’s buried in Evergreen Cemetery), as well as the peace treaty negotiated with Gen. Howard, and much more that makes Cochise such a fascinating figure. After hearing this talk you, too, will want to visit Chiracahua National Monument, where Cochise was born and grew up; to Ft. Bowie and Apache Pass, where Cochise went to war against us; and to Cochise’s Stronghold, where the great man died. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served. $15 per lecture. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the community effort to “Save the Presidio.” Please call for reservations and future dates, 520-398-2252.
