      (AMERICAN INDIANS--PHOTOGRAPHS.) Photograph believed to depict Geronimo and other Apache prisoners. Photograph, 5 x 7 inches, signed in negative "L.H."; unmounted, moderate wear including 1/4-inch tear on top edge. [Fort Sill, OK?], circa 1900-09

      Estimate $500 - 750

      Geronimo and the Chiricahua Apaches surrendered to the United States Army in 1886, and became prisoners of war. 341 surviving members were sent to Fort Sill, OK in 1894, where Geronimo spent the remainder of his years until his death in 1909. This photograph, which probably dates to the first decade of the 20th century, apparently shows Geronimo (front row, third from left) and 16 other men. The photographer is identified in the negative only by the initials "L.H."
