Geronimo tells of the apache – mexican wars

About 1873 we were again attacked by Mexican troops in our settlement, but we defeated them. Then we decided to make raids into Mexico.

We moved our whole camp, packing all our belonging on mules and horses, went into Mexico and made camp in the mountains near Nacori.

In moving our camp in this way we wanted no one to spy on us, and if we passed a Mexican’s home we usually killed the inmates.

However, if they offered to surrender and made no resistance or trouble in any way, we would take them prisoners.
