Apache Scouts • Earth.com

Naturally, many Apache bitterly opposed the white settlers who took their lands. This group of scouts, though? They actually worked for the U.S. Army. Yep, the ten men photographed here assisted General George Crook. He was hunting the Apache leader Geronimo, who was finally forced to surrender in 1886 – likely the very year this image was created.
