Buffalo Soldiers

The role of Buffalo Soldiers in the history of the United States of America.
rodney Amankwah's insight:

African Americans have been fighting in military conflicts since colonial days. The Buffalo Soldiers comprised former slaves, freemen and United States Colored Troops of the Civil War.

More than 180,000 African-Americans served in the Union Army during the Civil War. More than 33,000 of those soldiers died in the conflict. Following the war, the future of African Americans in the U.S. Army was uncertain.

As the post-Civil War Westward movement began to unfold, the Buffalo Soldiers conducted campaigns against American Indian tribes on a western frontier that extended from Montana in the Northwest to Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona in the Southwest.
