Stalking the Lieutenant: A Story of Apache Strategy


Wednesday Hardscrabble, March 20 at 6:30 p.m. at Bullion Plaza Cultural Center and Museum in Miami for March will be about finding the evidence of a brilliant Apache leader in early territorial Arizona.

In 1871, Chiricahua Apache Chief Juh carefully orchestrated a brilliant attack on the U.S. Cavalry, precisely manipulating their journey in order to exact vengeance on a single officer, Lt. Howard Cushing.

Archaeologist Deni Seymour will present this story of the gifted military strategist and the overly confident Army officer, using careful research at the site of the battle that happened nearly 150 years ago in Southeastern Arizona.

Wednesday Hardscrabble programs are co-hosted by Gila County Historical Museum in Globe and Bullion Plaza Cultural Center in Miami. They are always free to the public.
