Mickey Free was born in 1847 of Mexican parents and was abducted by a Pinal Apache raiding party at the age of 12. The kidnapping had major implications for US- Apache relations and triggered the Chiricahua Wars because it was mistakenly believed that Mickey Free had been taken by Chiricahua Apaches. He became an Apache Scout in 1872 and was promoted to the rank of Sergeant and was posted to Camp Verde.
