The Aztec Club of 1847 is closely aligned with the Order of Indian Wars of the United States. For the past several years, the annual April dinner meeting has been jointly held at the Belle Haven Country Club, Alexandria, Virginia.
Many of the officers in the War with Mexico were graduates of West Point in the era of 1830 and served the United States in the numerous Indian Wars. Furthermore, following the Mexican War, most went on to be major players in the Civil War. This link takes you to the OIWUS web site.
