    Rick Metcalf writes an interesting article for travel purposes. As a historian, I give him low points. Why? Simply because there is a liberal progressive and historical revision that creeps into his exposition. It is a malady that infects most liberals. It comes out when matters of history are discussed. Having read some of the oral histories of Arizona settlers during the 1860's and published accounts of the Apaches of Cochise and Geronimo's band of merry warriors, one gets another perspective. I do not think many white settlers whose relatives were captured, tortured, killed, and mutilated by Apaches during the time in which Metcalf writes would agree with the statement in his article " Under profound sadness, the most powerful Apache leader in history was gone." Prior to the American presence, the Apaches were brutal towards other native American tribes, Mexicans, and anyone venturing in Apache territory. If Mr Metcalf wishes to revise history, he is doing a good job in this article. Remember, if you want to be a historical writer, stick with the truth, wherever it is. Otherwise, just do travel writing, something Mr Metcalf is better at.
