“Chiricahua Apaches vs. the U.S. military”

Fort Bowie commemorates the bitter conflict between Chiricahua Apaches and the U.S. military - a lasting monument to the bravery and endurance of U.S. soldiers in paving the way for settlement and the taming of the western frontier. It provides insight into a "clash of cultures," a young nation in pursuit of "manifest destiny," and the hunter/gatherer society fighting to preserve its existence.

This is a 25 minute drive off the I-10. Really easy to find, good signage. You do have to drive on a dirt road for about a mile but it is nice and maintained.
The park ranger, Michael Dozie, did an amazing job at explaining everything to us. The fort is set on a beautiful landscape. If you have some time, stop by and take in this amazing historical site.
