"The Buffalo Soldiers: Their Epic Story and Major Campaigns"

Dr. Debra Sheffer will discuss her book The Buffalo Soldiers: Their Epic Story and Major Campaigns.

This fascinating saga follows the story of the Buffalo Soldiers as they participated in key events in America's history. Sheffer discusses the impetus for the earliest black military service, how that service led to the creation of the Buffalo Soldiers, and how these men - and one woman - continued to serve in the face of epic obstacles. The work celebrates their significant military contributions to the campaigns of the American frontier and other battles, their fighting experiences, and life on the plains. Starting with the American Revolution, the book traces the heroic journey of these legendary servicemen from the period when black Americans first sought full citizenship in exchange for military service to the integration of the military and the dissolution of all-black regiments. Several chapters highlight the special achievements of the 9th and 10th United States Cavalry and the 24th and 25th United States Infantry. The book also features the accomplishments - both of the unit and individuals - of the Buffalo Soldiers in battle and beyond.
