Apache Warrior Geronimo Surrenders

ABOVE: GERONIMO

 

On this day in 1886, the Apache Wars draw to a conclusion with the surrender of Geronimo in the United States. According to Geronimo, the terms of his surrender were not met, which if true, was yet another example of the lack of honour of generations of Americans when dealing with native Indians. In his latter years, Geronimo regretted his surrender and was never allowed to return to his homeland.

France: Execution of Louis XVI

Louis XVI began his reign on the 10th May 1774 as King of France and Navarre, before becoming King of the French on the 1st October 1791. His reign ended on the 21st September 1792 and he was executed (beheaded) by guillotine on this day in 1793 at the Place de la Revolution.

Louis XVI supported the Americans in the War of Independence, prior to the French Revolution which ended the monarchy in France and therefore his reign.
