OIW's 39th Annual Assembly

Amarillo, Texas

September 27-30, 2018

The Plains on Fire - The Red River War

Nelson Miles characterized the Red River War as "not only comprehensive, but...the most successful of any Indian campaign in the country since its settlement by the whites.

With Neil Mangum as our guide, we'll visit Kit Carson's greatest Indian fight and the site of George Armstrong Custer's greatest Indian Wars victory.

The Kit Carson fight at the First Battle of Adobe Walls in 1864 will be the earliest fight site we visit. Custer's victory at the Washita followed in 1868. His victory would set a pattern for Indian War tactics -- catch the Indians in their village and kill the horses. We'll tour the battlefield, visit the NPS museum and have lunch in Cheyenne, Oklahoma.

 The Second Battle of Adobe Walls in 1874 will be one of our stops. We'll head back to Borger, Texas. to visit the Hutchinson County Museum.

The set piece of the Red River War is Palo Duro Canyon. You'll be captivated by its beauty and fascinated by its history. Both Miles and Ranald Mackenzie fought engagements in the canyon. Next will be a trip to the visitor's center to view the canyon from the rim.

The largest and the oldest history museum in Texas, the Panhandle Plains Museum is next.

All of this plus a dinner at one of the most famous of all Texas institutions, The Big Texan Steak House.
