Many Americans know of the existence of an Apache nicknamed Geronimo. Fewer Americans know about his role in resisting Mexican and American expropriation of Apache lands and fewer know about his life after he surrendered to the American Army and exited the fight. Once he exited the fight, Geronimo became an American celebrity. He made an appearance at the World's Fair in St. Louis and rode alongside President Roosevelt at his 1905 inaugural. Most notably, his name became associated with bravery in American culture, such as with paratroopers invoking it when they jumped out of airplanes. However, with all the celebrity status the American public accorded Geronimo, he was never allowed to return home, whether in his lifetime of afterwards.
