Buffalo Soldiers Revealed

The Buffalo Soldiers were the first African-American soldiers established by Congress.   Former slaves, the group fought to restore order, protect communities in the Western Frontier, and fight in wars.  Despite discrimination the soldiers never gave up, earning awards for their heroism and leaving a legacy for many to follow in their footsteps.

We sat down with co-founder of the National Multi-Cultural Western Heritage Museum, Jim Austin to learn more about the brave men and women who fought.
