Apache Chief Geronimo in council with General George Crook, arranging terms of surrender in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico.

The Apache Wars took place between 1849 and 1886 in the Southwest between the United States Army and various Apache nations. From 1850 to 1886 Geronimo (b. 1829 - d. 1929) and other leaders of the Apache tribe resisted United States military campaigns in the southwestern territories of Arizona and New Mexico. In 1886, after decades of fighting, Geronimo surrendered to U.S. Army Lieutenant Charles B. Gatewood and he and several other Apaches were transferred from Arizona to Florida in exile. Indian scout Tom Horn escorted Geronimo to the Bowie train station for transport to exile in Florida.
