Buffalo Soldier was a nickname given by the Indians to members of black cavalry regiments from 1867 to 1896. Their duties included escorting stagecoaches, trains, and work parties and policing cattle rustlers and illegal traders who sold guns and liquor to the Indians, but their principal mission was to “control” the Indians of the Plains and Southwest.
They represented about twenty percent of the U. S. Cavalry on the frontier. In nearly thirty years of service in the region, Buffalo Soldiers fought in almost 200 engagements. From 1870 to 1890, fourteen won the Medal of Honor.
The 10th Cavalry was an all-African American regiment that was formed at Fort Leavenworth on September 21, 1866, and was the regiment that the Indians first called "Buffalo Soldiers." In time, all of the all-black regiments in the United States Army were call Buffalo Soldiers and it was a sign of honor. The Buffalo Soldier Memorial is dedicated to the 9th and 10th Horse Cavalry Regiments - the famous "Buffalo Soldiers."
