Making Peace with Cochise

Product Details


Sladen, a Civil War veteran and medical school graduate, had the good fortune to accompany Gen. Oliver Howard on his successful attempt to make peace with Cochise, the Apache leader who battled long against the U.S. government and white settlement in his territory. In addition to giving a narrative account of the trip, Sladen also uses the powers of observation honed in his medical training to describe life in the Apache camp. While several historians have used Sladen's journal in manuscript form, Sweeney (Cochise: Chiricahua Apache Chief, Univ. of Oklahoma, 1991) made the extra effort to see to its publication. He has carefully edited it and provided an introduction and copious notes that place the account in proper perspective. This journal will be useful not only to specialists but also to general readers and students interested in Cochise and the Apaches.‘Stephen H. Peters, Northern Michigan Univ. Lib., Marquette
