TODAY IN HISTORY

On this day in 1886, Apache chief Geronimo surrenders to U.S. government troops. For 30 years, the mighty Native American warrior had battled to protect his tribe’s homeland; however, by 1886 the Apaches were exhausted and hopelessly outnumbered. General Nelson Miles accepted Geronimo’s surrender, making him the last Indian warrior to formally give in to U.S. forces and signaling the end of the Indian Wars in the Southwest.

Also, T&P announced this week’s Happy Hour.

Per Matt: “Park at the east entrance of the place on 26th. There’s a minimart nearby as well as a few places to grab food to go (babydoll pizza has the best meatball sub in town)”

 

Be polite. Also, let’s leave it in better condition than we found it. Or I’ll tell the zombies where you live.
