These questions have haunted the posthumous reputation of Apache warrior Geronimo.
We saw enough of ourselves in Geronimo—enough Geronimo in ourselves—to honor him even in his defeat.
The “special vehemence” that Geronimo brought to raids there could be dated almost precisely to a night in 1851.
Geronimo was the last renegade, the last man to defy the continent-straddling power of the American nation.
Born in 1829 near the Gila River in what is now Arizona, the legendary Indian warrior Geronimo was a Chiracahua Apache.
Geronimo seized Federico's hand, and hurried him behind the pillar.
This was Geronimo's country, the land of the greatest of the Apache fighters.
"Hold them prisoner and force the rurales to come out to attempt a rescue," replied Geronimo.
Geronimo must be her child; this wonderful resemblance could not deceive.
Whoa, an Indian so big that he dwarfed the wiry little pony he rode, came to meet Geronimo.
cry made in jumping, apparently from the story of the Apache leader Geronimo making a daring leap to escape U.S. cavalry pursuers at Medicine Bluffs, Oklahoma (and supposedly shouting his name in defiance as he did). Adopted as battle cry by 82nd Airborne U.S. paratroopers in World War II, who perhaps had seen it in the 1939 Paramount Studios movie "Geronimo." The name is the Italian and Spanish form of Jerome, from Greek Hieronomos, literally "sacred name."
