Geronimo and the End of the Apache Wars


After prolonged resistance against tremendous odds, Geronimo, the Apache shaman and war leader, and Naiche, the hereditary Chiricahua chief, surrendered to General Nelson A. Miles near the Mexican border on September 4,1886. It was the beginning of a new day for white settlers in the Southwest and of bitter exile for the Indians.
