But inpolicymakers decided to consolidate all the Apache bands at San Carlos, a hot, disease-ridden place on a parched stretch of the Gila River in Arizona.

They patrolled the desert, guarded communities, escorted military supply trains and mail coaches, ran down outlaws and horse thieves, built roads and telegraph lines, and constructed and repaired military posts. By mid-May the troops had exhausted their mounts, which were so broken down that the soldiers had to withdraw to Ojo Caliente and resume the chase on foot. Either way, it was not an easy death. Some had barely reached their 16th birthday. He also captured horses and mules.
