Watch American Experience: Geronimo at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 24 on Wisconsin Public Television.

Who was he really? It depends who you ask. And that is why I find the mysteries of history to be the most interesting parts of history. When everything is just facts and numbers, it’s like reading a dictionary. When everyone tells the story a little differently, then you can really get involved and make your own opinion on the matter.

Geronimo is just one of the many mysteries of history. He was feared by some, loved by others, but never fully understood by the world. How does a medicine man go from being a healer to one of the most feared men of the late 1800s? Resist. It was his fighting spirit that will ensure he is always remembered in the years to come. To some he will be remembered as a hero, while others will consider him a nuisance or a savage warrior.
