Lecture- Expelled: The Story of the Burning of the Annie White Homestead at Mustang Library or Virtual

In August of 1880, troops from Fort McDowell destroyed the homestead of Annie and Patrick White. The homestead was located north of the Fort McDowell military reservation and directly east of Rio Verde. Neither Annie nor Patrick White, Irish immigrants, were present when their seven children were evicted, and the homestead burned. Why would the US Army destroy a civilian homestead? Why were the officers complicit in the destruction not held accountable? What happened to Annie, Patrick, and their children in the years after the burning of their homestead? Come and hear the story of a strong Irish woman who took on the United States Army in a search for justice.
