This audio is related to the powerpoint presentation under the same name in this collection. The lecture begins with the first American's contact with the Chiricahua when beaver trappers settled along the San Pedro River in the 1840's. It covers the Gadsen purchase, the Butterfield Overland Mail Route, and the outbreak of hostilities between the Chiricahua's and the United States. It details the history of the wars between them from 1861 through 1886, including the killing of Cochise's family and subsequent kidnapping of settlers that led to the Cochise wars. It describes the events leading to the first peace agreement between Cochise and Tom Jeffers in 1872 which created the Chiricahua Reservation in southeastern Arizona. Geronimo's first surrender at Canyon de los Embudo to General George Crook is described and his escape with 42 renegades and their pursuit by 15,000 troops who never saw them. The conclusion describes the final surrender of Geronimo in 1886, the Chiricahuas move out of Arizona, and some present day history with the fact that there are only 20 full blooded Chiricahuas alive today.Audio Length00:37:18Date Original2005-11-29Date Range2000s (2000-2009)TypeSound- NonmusicalOriginal FormatLecturesLanguageEnglishContributing InstitutionCochise College LibraryCollectionCochise County Historical & Archeological CollectionRights StatementThis resource is owned by Cochise College and is provided here for educational purposes only.
