Geronimo “the one who yawns” (June 16, 1829 – February 17, 1909)


On September 4, 1886, Apache leader
Geronimo (above) surrendered to U.S.
government troops. For 30 years, the Native American warrior had battled
to protect his tribe’s homeland; however, by 1886 the Apaches were
exhausted and hopelessly outnumbered. General Nelson Miles accepted
Geronimo’s surrender, making him the last Native American warrior to
formally give in to U.S. forces and signaling the end of the Indian Wars
in the Southwest.
