Geronimo! The Last Apache Warrior
By Tammy Scarbrough
  

1     Geronimo was an Apache who was born in 1829. He lived a peaceful life, until his mother, wife, and three children were killed by Mexican soldiers. On that fateful night, he became one of the boldest warriors of all time, determined to get revenge.
 
2     When Geronimo was about 19 years old, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed. This treaty ceded a lot of land that had been owned by Mexico to the United States, some of which included Arizona. It was clear that the Apaches were going to be uprooted. New settlers began to take over Apache land to build their own ranches and towns. This did not sit too well with Geronimo and his people.
 
3     Even though the new settlers gave some of the land to the Chiracahua Apaches, it was not all of what the Native Americans had before they were disrupted. Around 1872, even this land was also taken from them. The Chiracahuas were forced to leave their reservation and live among other Apaches on the San Carlos Reservation in Arizona.
