Event Details

"September 21, 2017 marks the 151st anniversary of the formation of two regiments who were formerly known as the United States Colored Troops...the 9th and 10th U.S. Cavalry. Black soldiers were "unsung heroes, brothers, and husbands. They were former slaves and Civil War veterans." "Unlearned and self-educated, they were writers, share-croppers, painters, cigar makers, waiters, cooks and mechanics...they came from all walks of life to serve their country." These honorable, strong and determined MEN became known as the BUFFALO SOLDIERS. Their missions: establish forts, protect the frontier, conduct surveys and preserve peace.  Known for not diverting from their mission, Buffalo Soldiers like the bison fought ferociously, displayed uncommon stamina and courage and while doing so, gained several adversaries whether Indians, outlaws, Mexican revolutionaries or gun smugglers, the Buffalo Soldiers go down in history as one of the proudest soldiers of all." (U.S., Army)We celebrate, applaud and remember their accomplishments and the legacy they leave for us to learn from and follow.  READY and FORWARD!!
