GERONIMO: RESPONSIBLE  FOR THE BEGINNING OF BISBEE

GERONIMO

Welcome to #BigJeepTours, where we take you on a thrilling journey through the rich history of Bisbee, Arizona. One of the main highlights of our tour is the intriguing tale of the legendary Apache leader, Geronimo, who played an indirect role in the birth of Bisbee and continued to impact the town for almost a decade. 🏜️🚙💥


- Bisbee, Arizona, was initially a small, desolate area in the late 1800s. However, in 1877, a reconnaissance detail was sent by the United States Army to the Mule Mountains to track down the elusive Geronimo and his Apache followers. 🏔️🔍💰

- Despite Bisbee's growth and prosperity, Geronimo and his followers continued to launch raids in the area for nine long years. These attacks were part of a broader campaign against American and Mexican settlements in the Southwest, as the Apache leader sought to defend his ancestral lands from encroaching settlers. Our tours will take you to key locations that witnessed these historic events, where you can immerse yourself in the stories of bravery, resilience, and survival. 🌵⚔️🌄


In 1886, Geronimo finally surrendered to the United States Army after years of evading capture. General Nelson A. Miles, the man responsible for Geronimo's capture, negotiated the terms of surrender that ended the Apache leader's reign of terror in the Southwest. On our tour, you'll hear about the locations where Geronimo's surrender took place, and learn about the impact it had on both the Apache people and the people of Bisbee. 🕊️🌍🏜️
