Henry Ware Lawton (March 17, 1843 – December 19, 1899) was a highly respected U.S. Army officer who served with distinction in the Civil War, the Apache Wars, the Spanish–American War and was the only U.S. general officer to be killed during the Philippine–American War. Henry Lawton, as Captain and commander of B-Troop of the 4th U.S. Cavalry   is credited with the capture of the great Apache Chief Geronimo, September 1886.   It is most ironic, then, that Lawton, as a Major General, lost his life during the Spanish-American War on December 19, 1899,  to the forces of a Filipino General named . . . . .  Licerio Geronimo. The city of Lawton, Oklahoma, takes its name from General Lawton, and also a borough in the city of Havana, Cuba.
