OIW Board of Directors
Mike Koury, Chairman
It is my sad duty to report the death of one of the founding members of the "new" OIW, Charlie Cooper. Charlie contributed greater to the rebirth of the OIW in 2004. His personality and wit will be sorely missed.
Larry Bartlett, Layton Hooper, Earl Hunsicker, Danny Martinez, Ron Nichols and Mike O’Keefe
Emeritus: Neil Mangum
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.
