Description

Mr. McNally’s book, The Modoc War, tells the wrenching story of one of the United States’ most expensive campaigns against North American indigenous people. The U.S. Army put more than a thousand soldiers in the field in 1872 to subdue fifty-five Modoc fighters. Although little remembered today, the Modoc War dominated national headlines for a year. And when the shooting stopped, for the first and only time in U.S. history, surviving Native fighters were tried and hanged for war crimes against the United States. OLLI and Mr. McNally offer an account of this dark corner of our history that’s both horrific and compelling. Come learn more about the war that didn’t end when the last shot was fired.

This lecture will take place at Lake Park, 1850 Alice Street, Oakland, CA 94612.
