POTD: No Place to Meet Your Enemy

No Place to Meet Your Enemy
Cochise Stronghold, Arizona

No place to meet your enemy that is if you’re the U.S. Army trying to roust the Chokonen band of the Chiricahua Apache out of their homeland in the Dragoon Mountains in Arizona. Cochise grew up there and retreated to this rocky canyon that now bears his name a number of times to successfully avoid capture. Particularly given the military capability that existed in those days, this looks like a very defensible position to me.
