Geronimo •

One of the best-known Native Americans, Geronimo – far right in this 1886 picture – was chief of the Chiricahua Apache. Born in 1829, the chief led his people in resistance against both Mexican and American attempts to take Apache territory or force them into reservations. At one point, a quarter of U.S. army forces apparently hunted the legendary leader until he was captured in 1886. He then lived on as a prisoner of war until 1909. Photo Credit: C. S. Fly
