National Parks Store: The Life and Times of Thomas Jefferson Jeffords, Friend of Cochise


Join historian Doug Hocking as he takes us deep into the life of an extraordinary man who brought nations together.

Share on Facebook

Thomas Jefferson Jeffords spent his early life as the child of a man trying to save enough to buy a farm. As a captain on the Great Lakes, Tom was uniquely suited to gaining trust and respect quickly and to accepting other cultures. Perhaps this is why history knows him as the friend of Cochise, who called him brother and trusted him as an advisor.

Join historian Doug Hocking as he takes us deep into the life of an extraordinary man who brought nations together. As an early ambassador of our nation, Tom worked in numerous positions of trust, made fast friends, prospected and mined, but never quite made the fortune that would have allowed him to take a wife. Though he lacked progeny, his life’s work lives on. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience Doug Hocking’s talented storytelling and informed historical interpretation.

Showings at 12 PM & 2 PM
