These attacks were launched in such a way that if the enemy rallied stubbornly, the Apaches could fade back into cover and disperse with minimal loss – as in the example of Nana’s ambush in Carrizo Canyon, cited above. Cerro Mata Ortiz, November 13, 1882 This was an action between Apaches directed by Juh, Geronimo and Nana, and a small party of Chihuahua state troops led by Juan Mata Ortiz. com decided to attack the garrison of the small town of Galeana.
