The Last Campaign: Sherman, Geronimo and the War for America
  • Date: Tuesday, November 01, 2022
  • Time: 1:00 pm
  • Location: Virtual

Bestselling historian and Pulitzer Prize finalist H. W. Brands follows the lives of Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman and Apache war leader Geronimo to tell the story of the Indian Wars and the final fight for control of the American continent. Brands will discuss how Sherman and Geronimo were keen strategists and bold soldiers, ruthless with their enemies. Over the course of the 1870s and 1880s, these two war chiefs would confront each other in the final battle for what the American West would be: a sparsely settled, wild home where Indian tribes could thrive or a more densely populated extension of the America to the east of the Mississippi.
