The author of dozens of books and scores of articles, as well as a consultant to film and TV, Dr. Langellier shared this preview of his talk with us:

Geronimo’s long bid for freedom had ended. Now he and many fellow so-called Chiricahuas were prisoners of war in far off Florida.  Three of the men who had trailed him and his followers were U.S Army scouts known on their enlistment papers as the Apache Kid, Massai, and Rowdy.  The trio, once comrades in arms, would follow very different paths resulting in one of Arizona’s longest manhunts. Join military historian Dr. John Langellier as buffalo soldiers, Indian scouts, and a host of other military men and civilians attempt to round up the usual suspects criss- crossing the border between Mexico and the United States on this deadly mission.
