Lecture with Dr. Eduardo Pagán, America’s Longest War: The Apache Wars, 1849-1924

America’s involvement in Afghanistan is often referred to as America’s longest war, but the Apache Wars between Americans and Apaches lasted from 1849 and 1886, with some hostilities continuing until 1924. This presentation will cover how one Apache family led the effort to protect their lands from encroachment, and how the Apache Wars shaped the settling of Arizona.
