Join member Bob McNally as he shares from his research for his book “The Modoc War: A Story of Genocide at the Dawn of America’s Gilded Age.” Bob’s book deals with a clear example of genocide against Natives, and offers a foundation for a discussion of the reality behind European Americans’ treatment of Natives, which turns out to be both a nightmare and a horror story.
