    "The Last of the Indian Wars"
    The Apache tribes of the American southwest were relatively new to the area when Spain arrived on the scene in the 1500's. For the next 300 years they did battle with Spanish and then Mexican soldiers who developed a serious hatred for Apaches. After the war between Mexico and the US, Apache territory was suddenly split by an invisible border. It wasn't long before the Apache noticed that Mexican cavalry did not cross the line anymore and the US side wasn't dangerous at all. The ancient Apache culture was based on raiding for resources so this situation gave them a US sanctuary for raiding Mexican settlements. The US virtually ignored their existence at first. But that soon changed.
    Research the Apache Wars full history and respond to the following statements;
    Describe how the wars began in Mexico.
    Describe how the war began in the US.
    What was Geronimo's role in later Apache battles?
    How well did the US Army faire against Geronimo?
    Who were the "Buffalo Soldiers" who ultimately defeated Geronimo?
    Answer each question with an image (map, photo, painting etc) in addition to a paragraph of explanation. Include sources for each item because none of this counts without them.

    take the test.exam. Your term
    The "Final Exam" will consist of a vocabulary test over the entire term's content, including the Potpourri Unit content (you won't take a separate Potpourri Unit Vocab Test). The test will simply be a longer version of tests you have taken throughout the course. Review the terms and concepts on each of the outlines above. Your grade will be placed on a "curve" based on the number of answers you score correctly, rather than a straight percentage. This will be administered during the next to last, possibly last class period for your term, or during the designated "senior exam" period.

    Images of War Class
    The name of the class is derived from the past practice of showing a lot of war movies. This has not changed much since it is part of the way to present this broad and difficult subject. However, U.S. military history in general will be the subject and will be looked at from the standpoint of change. Using World War II as a baseline, and the first unit, other U.S. military actions will be compared and contrasted in terms of political, economic, social and technological change. Foreign military concepts will of course be included where appropriate. A very basic understanding of military ranks, organization and terminology naturally emerges from much of this course. The highest goal is to produce interest in lifelong study rather than to produce answers on a test.
