The 34th Annual OIW Assembly
On the Trail of Geronimo!
Tucson, Arizona, September 26-29, 2013
On the 25th of September, 2013, we started our tour "On the Trail of Geronimo." Headquarters was at the Radisson Suites Tucson and there was a "welcome" dinner of hotdogs and hamburgers poolside. Everyone enjoyed the beautiful hotel.
The next day leading the tour on one bus was Neil Mangum and Bernd Brand. Interpreting for Neil was Mike Koury. On our second bus, folks were informed, entertained, and educated by Layton Hooper, assisted by Danny Aranda and Ed Sweeney! It just didn't get better than that.
Tour sites included Mission San Xavier del Bac, San Jose de Tumacacori Mission Church, The Horse Soldier Museum, Fort Huachuca, Tombstone, the Arizona Historical Society Museum (with a special display on Geronimo), Fort Lowell, Dragoon Springs, the American Indian Museum (Amerind), and of course Fort Bowie.

Thank a History teacher today....
Order of the Indian Wars is a "spiritual" descendant of an earlier group formed by actual veterans of the Indian Wars campaigns known as "The Order of Indian Wars of the United States."
We have no official connection with the "Order of Indian Wars of the United States."
Anyone may join the Order of the Indian Wars -- JOIN ORDER OF THE INDIAN WARS
Our purposes are similar: In-depth study and dissemination of information on that aspect of United States military history of Indian warfare whether it is Indians against each other or with emigrant settlers and soldiers alike.
We have an interest in military history only. We are not a forum for political or sociological crusades.
We seek to understand and commemorate the history of the peoples and events in our past...on both sides.
We also seek to preserve and protect those important sites associated with the history of the Indian Wars in this country and to encourage individuals and groups to become involved in the preservation effort of their communities. Once these sites are gone they can never be regained.
The OIW Special Orders is our newsletter that provides historical articles, information on battle site preservation, and assorted other relevant historical topics.
We meet annually meet at a significant site in Indian War history with presentations and tours by noted historians, scholars, writers, and preservationists.
Please book mark our site for future reference and especially information on the next Assembly.
