Gatewood, Charles B. (1853-1896). Headquarters Department of California, Dec. 26, 1888, as 1st Lieut. 6th Cavalry. Assignment of paymasters to San Francisco, Angel and Alcatraz Islands (Major Asa Carey); Benicia Arsenal and Barracks (Major Frank M. Coxe - to whom this copy was sent); and Fort Gaston (Major George F. Robinson).
First Lieutenant Charles B. Gatewood (1853-1896) was instrumental in persuading Geronimo to surrender. Gatewood, fluent in the Apache language, was given charge of the White Mountain Apache Scouts by Brigadier General George Cook. Gatewood's philosophy was to treat his scouts with respect and cultural understanding, which was well-received by both the scouts and Geronimo. At one meeting Geromino told Gatewood, "You are always welcome in my camp, and it is always safe for your to come" (Roberts:1994).
Some browning (water damage?).
