Teres Mountains

Back to Comancheria Forts

22 September 1885; Northeastern Sonora, Mexico: After decimating Geronimo's Apache camp at Casas Grandes, Capt. Wirt Davis searched for the wily Chiricahua chief, but he had slipped back north of the border. Davis and his Indian scouts found another band of Apaches in the Teres Mountains below the northern loop of the Bavispe River. In the ensuing skirmish, one scout was killed and one was wounded, while the scouts killed one hostile and wounded two. The same day, Geronimo recaptured one of his wives and one of his children from near Fort Apache.
