Geronimo 1886

This is an 8 x 10 Inch Open Edition Reproduction art Pint of a Vintage Image printed on High Quality Art Paper

While well known, Geronimo was not a chief among the Chiricahua or the Bedonkohe band. However, since he was a superb leader in raiding and warfare he frequently led large numbers of men and women beyond his own following.At any one time, about 30 to 50 Apaches would be following him.

During Geronimo's final period of conflict from 1876 to 1886 he "surrendered" three times and accepted life on the Apache reservations in Arizona. Reservation life was confining to the free-moving Apache people, and they resented restrictions on their customary way of life.[6]

In 1886, after an intense pursuit in Northern Mexico by U.S. forces that followed Geronimo's third 1885 reservation "breakout", Geronimo surrendered for the last time to Lt.Charles Bare Gatewood, an Apache-speakingWest Pointgraduate who had earned Geronimo's respect a few years before. Geronimo was later transferred to GeneralNelson MilesatSkeleton Canyon, just north of the Mexican/American boundary. Miles treated Geronimo as aprisoner of warand acted promptly to remove Geronimo first toFort Bowie, then to the railroad at Bowie Station, Arizona where he and 27 other Apaches were sent off to join the rest of the Chiricahua tribe which had been previously exiled toFlorida.

In his old age, Geronimo became a celebrity. He appeared at fairs, including the1904 World's FairinSt. Louis, where he reportedly rode a ferris wheel and sold souvenirs and photographs of himself. However, he was not allowed to return to the land of his birth. He died at theFort Sillhospital in 1909.[8]He was still a prisoner of war. He is buried at the Fort Sill Indian Agency Cemetery surrounded by the graves of relatives and other Apache prisoners of war.
