Fort Sill, OklahomaThe roll call of chiefs, warriors, army scouts and families buried here include the most famous names in Apache history: Geronimo, whose daring band performed deeds unmatched since the days of Captain Kidd; Chief Loco of the Warm Springs who stood for peace; Chief Nana, the original desert fox; Chief Chihuahua of the Chiricahuas; and sons and grandsons of Mangus Colorados, Victorio, Cochise, Naiche and Juh and of such noted scouts as Kaahteney, Chatto, Kayitah and Martine. Here also lie 12 of the 50 Apaches who were U.S. soldiers and scouts at Fort Sill. Linked with these men in the Indian Wars was a legion of Army greats—General Cook, Miles, Howard, Crawford, Gatewood, Lawton, Grierson and Leonard Wood.
