Buffalo Soldiers
Buffalo Soldiers
The 9th and 10th U.S. Cavalry, along with two infantry regiments, were the first African-American regiments to serve in the regular army during peacetime. They patrolled the West after the Civil War and also served during the Spanish-American War in 1898. Native Americans, impressed with the troops' bravery in battle, gave them the name Buffalo Soldiers.
