Underground History: The Modoc War In Photos

Jan 24, 2018

The Modoc War of the 1870s gets lots of attention from historians, archaeologists, and just folks.  It was a major episode in the defeat of Native Americans at the hands of the federal government, resulting in their movement to reservations. 

And it is the focus of this month's edition of Underground History, our regular visit with Southern Oregon University Laboratory of Anthropology (SOULA)

Chelsea Rose and Mark Tveskov bring in Eric Gleason, who's been doing research on the Modoc War. 

Among his efforts: analysis of the photographs of the war and its participants.  He's taken plenty of his own photographs for comparison.
