Gutshot Game – Geronimo Campaign of 1886 Saturday the local HMGS-South group played a game of Gutshot, set during the campaign to capture Geronimo in 1886. The Apaches need to break through the cavalry units to escape. The Apache village is on the far left. The possible Apache exit are on the upper right and lower right. Cavalry patrol with an artillery piece. Hidden warriors in the rock have emptied a couple of saddles. The black markers are possible Apache locations, not yet spotted. The gun is unlimbered…. And promptly blows up an Apache and his rock pile hiding place (far left). Ton Horn (leader of the cavalry’s Apache scouts) lies where he fell after losing a knife fight up on the cliff. Most of Geronimo’s warriors are dead, as well as most of the scouts and soldiers near him. The captain (on the far right) has killed an Apache up on the rocks, and surveys the carnage across the landscape. Geronimo has led the women and children to an escape route, but is gunned down before he can get to safety. The empty village. Related
