Geronimo is captured...



Item # 670485

September 07, 1886

THE SAN DIEGO UNION, California, Sept. 7, 1886

* Geronimo - Apache Indians leader
* Fort Bowie - Arizona - capture


The top of the front page has, among other heads, the announcement: "Geronimo And His Band Prisoners at Last", however the actual text is rather brief and at the bottom of the next column: "Geronimo a Prisoner at Fort  Bowie", reading: "General Miles arrived at Fort Bowie last night with Geronimo, Nachez, and several bucks as prisoners. Captain Lawton, with the rest of the hostiles, numbering 35, are expected to arrive at Fort Bowie Wednesday."
Four pages, a bit irregular at the spine margin, some fold foxing, and an old library repair at the fold, generally good condition.
