Geronimo. In February 1909, Geronimo was thrown from his horse while riding home, lay in the cold all night before a friend found him. He died of pneumonia on 2/17/1909, as a prisoner of the U.S. at Fort Sill, OK. His last words were reported to be said to his nephew, "I should have never surrendered. I should have fought until I was the last man alive."
Geronimo as a younger man. A deadly warrior. Elsewhere called the greatest cavalry soldier to ever live. Ten thousand united warriors and repeating rifles and the history of the USA would have had a very different outcome.
Geronimo was an important Apache Native American leader who rose to celebrity status. His many cunning escapes from Indian reservations and the failure of 10,000 Mexican and American soldiers to capture him and his 39 warriors gave him a permanent place in history.
