Talk: Tully and Ochoa Wagon Train Fight
November 16, 2014 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am$2 – $7.50
This is the story behind Edward Zinn’s eye-witness 28 x 54 inch oil painting of an Indian attack on the Tully & Ochoa Company’s 80-mule, nine wagon train. On May 11, 1869, the teamsters left Tucson for Camp Grant. The next day they encountered a group of Apaches on a hill in Cañon del Oro. The leader shouted, “Leave the wagons and you can go”. The wagonmaster shouted back, “You can have the wagons when we can no longer hold them”. What happened next? Come and enjoy an exciting story of the Old West told in vivid detail by Jay Van Orden, Arizona Historical Society’s director of field services. $7.50 fee includes admission to the Park. Please call 398 – 2252 to reserve a place.
