"Geronimo is said to have had magical powers. He could see into the future, walk without creating footprints and even hold off the dawn to protect his own. This Apache Indian warrior and his band of 37 followers defied federal authority for more than 25 years."

People who don't read history books are unaware that a huge number of "cowboys" driving herds to the railheads in Kansas were Indians. And many don't know that some of "Indians" who raided the drives for beef were runaway slaves and ex-slaves adopted into the tribes in the Oklahoma territory.

Geronimo as a younger man. A deadly warrior. Elsewhere called the greatest cavalry soldier to ever live. Ten thousand united warriors and repeating rifles and the history of the USA would have had a very different outcome.
