Buffalo Soldier History

In 1866, Congress permitted the creation of six new regiments in the United States Army: the 9th and 10th Cavalry, and the 38th, 39th, 40th, and 41st Infantry. These regiments were unique, especially for the time, because they were entirely composed of African American men.
