The West was a wild place during the American Indian Wars.
Wednesday, January 16
2 PM only
Join Jack Lasseter as he shares what the post-Civil War Army was really like in the western US. Learn about the men who were enlisted, what life was like for the soldiers, and how only fifteen thousand to twenty thousand men were able to subdue some three hundred thousand American Indians on the western frontier. Imagine what life was like closer to home for troops stationed at Fort Bowie in Arizona.
Tickets are $5 and may be purchased any time before the presentation. Tickets are nonrefundable.
