Geronimo Surrender Site Memorial
Skeleton Canyon – off Highway 80
submitted by “Road Runner″ (Bill)
Bill visited the memorial cairn near the location of Geronimo’s (much debated) surrender. He expressed dismay at the graphitti on the memorial plaque and I agree. I’ll never understand what pleasure people derive from tagging 🙁
See a brief history of Geronimo here — and if the subject interests you, there are a number of interesting books available about his life and times. I recommend Geronimo: The Man, His Time, His Place by Angie Debo and Once They Moved Like The Wind by David Roberts. I purchased both for my father years ago and borrowed them from him when he was finished. In my opinion, the Roberts book is a bit opinionated; so you’ll need to filter fact from editorial prose while reading.
