Cabinet Card Photograph of Geronimo Holding a Dance Revolver, early 1900s. After years on the run, the great Apache warrior Geronimo surrendered to the U.S. military in 1886, and was sent to Florida for imprisonment. In 1894, Geronimo and 341 other Apaches were brought to Fort Sill, where they were held as prisoners of war for the rest of their lives. Geronimo was occasionally allowed to leave the fort later in his life, touring briefly with Pawnee Bill's Wild West Show in 1908. Here, the great Apache chief is pictured wearing an eagle-feather headdress and a heavily fringed buckskin shirt. He holds a Texas-made Dance revolver in his lap and looks to his left with a scowl on his face. ID'd on the front mount, 'Irwin, Chickasha Ind. Ter." The reverse has a period pencil commentary, "Geronimo Chief of the notorious band of Arizona Apache Indians. Now a prisoner of war at Fort Sill. A scarce and desirable image of a great Apache warrior. The albumen has a 1" triangle missing upper left corner not affect Geronimo. The mount shows wear on the corners. .
