One year after the Civil War ended, Congress formed an African-American group within the U.S Army, The Buffalo Soldier’s. These warriors left a legacy due to their fierce fighting and bravery.
“They were given the name (Buffalo Soldier’s) after they were fighting in the Indian campaign. This was given to them by the Cheyenne Indians because of their courageous fighting,” said Commander Fred Marable, co-founder of The Buffalo Soldiers of the Arizona Territory. “They had never seen any men fight like that. ,” he added.
