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." 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 seek to understand and commemorate the history of the peoples and events in our past.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

Featuring four well-known speakers, morning coffee, juice & doughnuts, full buffet lunch, authors, and booksellers.

Price, per person, is $35 if paid by May 2nd or $45 at the door.

This year our no-host party will be held at the Marriott Courtyard, 6565 South Boston Street -about 30 minutes after the closing of the symposium.
