America's Longest And Forgotten War
The kidnapping of a red-headed, half-Irish, half-Mexican Arizona boy was the unlikely impetus for the longest war in American history, says historian Paul Andrew Hutton. The Apache Wars lasted from 1861 until 1890, and revealed the tensions that existed between tribal communities and American settlers.
Paul Andrew Hutton will discuss the Apache Wars and his book on the same topic at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 31, at the Kansas City Library's Plaza Branch. For more information and to RSVP, visit KCLibrary.org.
