These materials include a cover letter and Descriptive Statement of Pupils regarding 37 Chiricahua Apache prisoners-of-war transferred to the Carlisle Indian School from Fort Marion in St. Augustine, Florida, where a larger group of Geronimo's band remained imprisoned. The 37 individuals transferred to Carlisle represented a portion of all prisoners aged between 12 and 22. A second group of prisoners from Geronimo's group were transferred in the Spring of 1887.
Note: The cover letter notes the inclusion of two other Descriptive Statements of Pupils, for children from Laguna and Pine Ridge. These Descriptive Statements were not included in the folder at the National Archives.
