Official Site of True West Magazine, Since 1953
This year will be the 100th year of his passing. Please feel free to visit the official web-site, and share your stories about him on the True West Forum under Today in History, Mickey Free U.S. Apache Scout.
Although he was brutally captured by an Apache raiding party and mistreated in the beginning (it's ironic that the Apache who captured Mickey was himself a captive), it's interesting that after all was said and done, he chose the Apaches. That in itself speaks volumes. Love the guy. I think he is the model modern character of this country and someday, someday, he will get his due.
I alwaysfelt he looked for Irish than even Mexican; Al said he was half Irish and half Mexican. He chose the Apaches because they appeared to accept him.
