Apache chief Geronimo surrenders...

Item # 661473

December 29, 1879

DAILY BETHLEHEM TIMES, Pennsylvania, Dec. 29, 1879

* Geronimo surrenders
* Chiricahua Apache chief

Page 2 has a rather inconspicuous yet notable report: "Geronimo, an Apache chief, and 83 of his band, have surrendered to the military at Camp Rucker & will be sent to the San Carlos reservation. These Indians have been depredating for months, and their surrender, it is said, 'virtually wipes out all the renegade Indians in Arizona and on the border.' "
Four pages, very nice condition.
