BORN ON THIS DAY IN 1829


Geronimo ("the one who yawns") was born in what is now
New Mexico.
(June 16, 1829 – February 17, 1909)

Geronimo was a Native American hero of the Chiricahua Apache Wars
who led his people in the fight against the U.S. and Mexico. His first wife, 
children, and mother were reportedly attacked and killed in 1858 by
Mexican soldiers. He was forced to surrender in 1886 and lived much 
of his remaining years as a prisoner of war. Geronimo had nine wives
and fathered two children.
