Fort Bowie National Monument
Arizona


Fort Bowie

Fort Bowie commemorates the story of the hostile conflict between the Chiricahua Apaches and the United States military.

Old wagon at Fort Bowie

For more than 30 years, Fort Bowie and Apache Pass were the center of military actions in the area.  The operations eventually ended with the surrender of Geronimo in 1886 and the banishment of the Chiricahuas to Florida and Alabama. It was also the site of the "Bascom Affair", a wagon train massacre, and the battle of Apache Pass, where a large force of Chiricahua Apaches fought the California Volunteers.

Fort Bowie

Today, the remains of Fort Bowie are carefully preserved.  There are adobe walls of assorted post buildings and ruins of a Butterfield Stage Station. Fort Bowie stands as a lasting monument to the bravery and endurance of U.S. soldiers in clearing the way for westward settlement and the taming of the western frontier. It also give us an understanding of the "clash of cultures": one a young emerging nation in pursuit of its "manifest destiny," the other a courageous hunter/gatherer culture fighting to preserve its existence. The Apache resistance was finally crushed at Fort Bowie.  The result was the end of the Indian wars in the United States.
