Historian and Professor H. W. Brands will discuss his book THE LAST CAMPAIGN: SHERMAN, GERONIMO AND THE WAR FOR AMERICA, which tells the story of the final struggle for control of the American continent through the lives of General William Tecumseh Sherman and Apache war leader Geronimo. Brands documents decades of relentless government actions to push Native Americans away through the exploration of the brutal relocation campaigns, internal debates among tribal leaders, and key battles. This includes Sherman’s plan to force Geronimo and his followers onto a reservation—with Geronimo preferring to fight.
