Today marks an interesting bit of history for the Yavapai and Apache Indians in the Verde Valley

Feb. 26 will mark the 130th anniversary of what would best be described as the low point in Anglo-Indian relations in the Verde Valley.

It was on that date in 1875 that 15 troops from Fort Verde, under the direction of Indian Commissioner L.E. Dudley and led by Gen. George Crook’s chief of scouts, Al Sieber, began relocating the Yavapai and Apache Indians from their reservation in the Verde Valley. [VERDE VALLEY NEWS]
