Buffalo Soldiers originally were members of the 10th Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army, formed on September 21, 1866, at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. This nickname was given to the Black Cavalry by Native American tribes who fought in the Indian Wars. The term eventually became synonymous with all of the African-American regiments formed in 1866:
9th Cavalry Regiment
10th Cavalry Regiment
24th Infantry Regiment
25th Infantry Regiment
Second 38th Infantry Regiment
Although several African-American regiments were raised during the Civil War as part of the Union Army (including the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry and the many United States Colored Troops Regiments), the “Buffalo Soldiers” were established by Congress as the first peacetime all-black regiments in the regular U.S. Army.[1] On September 6, 2005, Mark Matthews, the oldest surviving Buffalo Soldier, died at the age of 111. He was buried at Arlington National Cemetery. – Wikipedia

There's no doubt in my mind (a 66 year old white man) , that the African American race has earned every right , privilege , and respect that I myself feel I have earned and deserve … but I do not include all blacks as being deserving as I do not include all whites as being deserving … in my mind and life experience a man (or woman) has to earn the right to be called a good American , not just be born in or immigrate to this country , but you have to live a life worthy of that freedom , liberty , and the pursuit of happiness this American nation offers …

Marjorie Tillman says:

I hate when they keep saying many of these soldiers were illiterate, because they know many of the soldiers would have been killed if they got caught with a book trying to read.

William Le Noir says:

Truly we as a people have contributed greatly to the success of this country and we should never feel like we are not entitled to recognition for our contributions. If we have to toot our own horns we must be bold enough to do so.

Tim Jones says:

Black Americans are more American than most. They protected settlers! You know the newly arrived poor europeans coming into a newly minted country and staking claims on land provided to them by these men but not for these men. Looking back in history it's clear that whites spent all their time hating and making up lies about their roles in many an event. Yet who is the real hero, American and brave man? The Black American villain. The man in the background to you! Who was always in the foreground of your white ancestors.

Horace Harty says:

Bob Marley song buffalo soldier is a history lesson to the world of a people who defend a country who to this day their lives have little value. Feel sick to my stomach!!!!

Her Right There says:

oh ppl have destroyed the history. thank you for always posting great footage

Sam Martin says:

The old man just could not take this truth to his grave. So now when we watch "westerns", we know who really fought the "Indians".

Hope Wynn says:

Dude ….I doubt if the buffalo soldier were calling themselves "African American) at that time.

Jimmy and the Resurrection says:

There was a buffalo soldier. In the heart of America. Marley.

TONY Harris says:

That show you how one-sided America really is and it show you that our work is not yet done we are still trying to find a common ground to the like each other but make no mistake about it that one-sided government needs to be abolished

TONY Harris says:

It seemed to me that the United States of America have always treated the black man like an outside of don't matter what you say or what day our ancestors did to become to become the bridge over our past to bridge our future to United States of America denied all credibility and deny all liability make no mistake about it they say they didn't have nothing to do with the inhumane treatment of the Buffalo Soldier the Tuskegee Airmen and none of our ancestors what about the young men that's in prison today is those you have nothing to do with that neither well guess what sooner later that coronavirus is going to make it up there to watch and sooner or later it's going to make his rounds into the condition of our society then we would know how you fare and how you think of about America because we already know that America is gone to the dog
