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.

Remembering Japan's surrender to Allied forces — Class Activity | PBS NewsHour Extra


Aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay, Japan formally surrendered to the
Allies (above) bringing an end to
World War II.

By the summer of 1945, the defeat of Japan was a foregone conclusion. The Japanese navy and air force were destroyed. The Allied naval blockade of
Japan and intensive bombing of Japanese cities had left the country and
its economy devastated. At the end of June, the Americans captured
Okinawa, a Japanese island from which the Allies could launch an invasion
of the main Japanese home islands. U.S. General
Douglas MacArthur was
put in charge of the invasion, which was code-named “Operation Olympic”
and set for November 1945.
