A salute to Duelmaster Geronimo..............................................

     Geronimo (Mescalero-Chiricahua: "the one who yawns"; June 1829 - February 17, 
1909) was a prominent leader and medicine man from the Bedonkohe band of the Apache 
tribe. From 1850 to 1886 Geronimo joined with members of three other Chiricahua Apache 
bands--the Tchihende, the Tsokanende and the Nednhi--to carry out numerous raids as 
well as resistance to US and Mexican military campaigns in the northern Mexico states 
of Chihuahua and Sonora, and in the southwestern American territories of New Mexico 
and Arizona. Geronimo's raids and related combat actions were a part of the prolonged 
period of the Apache-United States conflict, which started with American settlement in 
Apache lands following the end of the war with Mexico in 1848. While well known, 
Geronimo was not a chief among the Chiricahua or the Bedonkohe band. However, since he 
was a superb leader in raiding and warfare he frequently led large numbers of men and 
women beyond his own following. At any one time, about 30 to 50 Apaches of several 
tribes would be following him.
     During Geronimo's final period of conflict from 1876 to 1886 he "surrendered" 
three times and accepted life on the Apache reservations in Arizona.  Reservation life 
was confining to the free-moving Apache people, and they resented restrictions on 
their customary way of life. In 1886, after an intense pursuit in Northern Mexico by 
U.S. forces that followed Geronimo's third 1885 reservation "breakout", Geronimo 
surrendered for the last time to Lt. Charles Bare Gatewood, an Apache-speaking West 
Point graduate who had earned Geronimo's respect a few years before. Geronimo was 
later transferred to General Nelson Miles at Skeleton Canyon, just north of the 
Mexican/American boundary. Miles treated Geronimo as a prisoner of war and acted 
promptly to remove Geronimo first to Fort Bowie, then to the railroad at Bowie 
Station, Arizona where he and 27 other Apaches were sent off to join the rest of the 
Chiricahua tribe which had been previously exiled to Florida.
     In his old age, Geronimo became a celebrity. He appeared at fairs, including the 
1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, where he reportedly rode a ferris wheel and sold 
souvenirs and photographs of himself. However, he was not allowed to return to the 
land of his birth. He died at the Fort Sill hospital in 1909, still as a prisoner of 
war. He is buried at the Fort Sill Indian Agency Cemetery surrounded by the graves of 
relatives and other Apache prisoners of war.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in JADE MOUNTAIN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for SUN TZU?  
JADED WARRIORS' proud of him after beating PLUM BLOSSOM and getting 15 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  EGGCRACKER got smashed by SHIZARAN BLACKHEART, and lost 
12 points!  What a putz!  GERONIMO fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits 
fighting and loses the title.  No one said he was a genius...  And I was just getting 
used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome ATTILA THE HUN.  Aren't 
JADED WARRIORS proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said JADE MOUNTAIN's 
Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Green Axe?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  SAND DANCERS was JADE MOUNTAIN's most avoided team.  Is there some 
award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why JADED WARRIORS' been avoiding 
SAND DANCERS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is PLUM BLOSSOM 
popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in all of JADE MOUNTAIN!  She's got a 
15-7-2, is that good?  People were asking me did HANNIBAL REALLY challenge JO MING?  
(all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, 
or anything, but JO MING wants me to write about it since he lost to HANNIBAL.  
Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
