|Years ago, my father and I tracked down Geronimo's grave out in the middle of nowhere on the sprawling US Army Base at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. We got there right at the last light of day.|
The Apache chief Geronimo was born on June 16, 1829 in what is now Arizona. He died February 17, 1909 at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. He fought the United States and Mexican Armies for years. He finally surrendered in 1886 and spent the rest of his life as a prisoner of war under some pretty loose restrictions. Check out more here.
