    Description

    Large Format Photograph Attributed to William E. Irwin of Apache Chief Geronimo With Texas Dance Revolver, ca early 1900s. After years on the run, the great Apache warrior Geronimo surrendered to the U.S. military in 1886, and was sent to Florida for imprisonment. In 1894, Geronimo and 341 other Apaches were brought to Fort Sill, where they were held as prisoners of war for the rest of their lives. Geronimo was occasionally allowed to leave the Fort later in his life, touring briefly with Pawnee Bill's Wild West Show in 1908.

    Geronimo is pictured here wearing a horned headdress and a heavily fringed buckskin shirt. He has a Texas Dance revolver in his cartridge belt and looks very defiant to the photographer "Irwin" (attributed, not marked on image). A rare and desirable image of a great Apache warrior. Measures approximately 5" x 7".

    Condition:
    Very fine, contrast great, mount excellent.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
