Description
Chief of the White Mountain Apache. A well-known character, having been a scout with General Crook. Colonel Cooley, who was chief of scouts under Crook, says a braver man than Alchise never lived. He was about twenty two years of age when Fort Apache, then Camp Ord, was established in 1870, making the year of his birth about 1848. This portrait was made at Alchlise's camp on White river in the spring of 1903.
