RARE ANTIQUE, Vintage, Original albumin boudoir photo of Chiricahua Apache Indian Chief, Mangus. Taken by Ben Wittick circa 1884. For this type of photo it is in good shape. There are 2 pinholes in the picture. There is some wear on the corners. Mangus was the son of the famous / infamous Warm Springs Apache Chief Mangus Coloradas (there are no known photos of Mangus Coloradas in existence). Mangus broke out of the Arizona San Carlos Reservation in 1885 along with Geronimo and other prominent Chiricahua leaders. When Geronimo surrendered to General Miles in September 1886, Mangus and his small group did not surrender – staying for 6 weeks in the mountains of Sonora, Mexico. Mangas finally surrendered at Fort Apache Arizona – the last hostile Chiricahua to surrender in the decades long Apache Wars.
