Welcome to our site!

The Buffalo Soldier story is one of courage and patriotism, because of their contributions and sacrifices in the past, we now have a future. It is our honor to tell their story, as it is a story worth telling.

These Soldiers protected the American frontier from the American Revolution through the Indian Wars. They also served in the Spanish-American War, Mexican expedition, the Cuban Crisis,Philippine insurrection, both World Wars, and the Korean conflict. Also a one hundred man detachment from the 9th Cavalry served to teach future officers at West Point riding instruction.

The importance of these men in the development of the American West went beyond serving in combat; they helped build frontier forts, constructed telegraph lines, patrolled the Mexican border, and captured thieves and outlaw gangs.

The courage of these Black soldiers meant not only valor in the face of danger, but a spirit to serve their country despite discrimination, segregation, and repressive laws. The last chapter of the Buffalo Soldiers ended in World War II. in spite of their great sacrifices and outstanding performance, the Buffalo Soldiers were not fully recognized or appreciated It was on July 25, 1992, at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, on the exact site where the Buffalo Soldiers lived and died, a magnificent homage to their spirit and legacy was erected: a bronze statue commissioned by General Colin Powell!
