Buffalo Soldiers: Defenders of the West

Buffalo Soldiers played an important role in settling the Panhandle-Plains Region in the years after the Civil War. The Buffalo Soldier Calvary and Infantry divisions were responsible for patrolling the frontier for Indians, building roads and telegraph lines, law enforcement, preventing cattle rustling, escorting mail parties and other civil and military tasks. They also participated in most of the major campaigns, including the Red River War from 1874-1875. This program will discuss the origin of the Buffalo Soldiers, their clothing, and the different purposes they serve on the frontier.

Cost is $100 with a max of 30 students.
