The Greater Atlanta Area 9th and 10th (Horse) Cavalry Association Buffalo Soldiers-10th Cavalry!

Our mission is to remember those heroes both living and dead who served this nation with pride and distinction... The Buffalo Soldiers! During the American Civil War, the U.S. government formed regiments known as the United States Colored Troops, composed of black soldiers. After the war, Congress reorganized the Army and authorized the formation of two regiments of black cavalry with the designations 9th and 10th U.S. Cavalry, and four regiments of black infantry, designated the 38th, 39th, 40th and 41st Infantry Regiments (Colored). The 38th and 41st were reorganized as the 25th Infantry Regiment, with headquarters in Jackson Barracks in New Orleans, Louisiana, in November 1869. The 39th and 40th were reorganized as the 24th Infantry Regiment, with headquarters at Fort Clark, Texas, in April 1869. All of these units were composed of black enlisted men commanded by both white and black officers. These included the first commander of the 10th Cavalry Benjamin Grierson, the first commander of the 9th Cavalry Edward Hatch, Medal of Honor recipient Louis H. Carpenter, the unforgettable Nicholas M. Nolan, and the first black graduate of West Point, Henry O. Flipper.

BUFFALO SOLDIER bronze sculpture by artist Chris Navarro I wanted to contact Buffalo Soldier fans and organization and share with you my memorial monumental bronze that honors the Buffalo soldier. `Below is a video and landing page on the sculpture. The bronze comes in two sizes- Monumental Bronze, 120’’ x 50’ x 40’’$ 52000. Bronze, 14.5’ ’x 5’’ x 5’’ $1800. “Buffalo Soldier” is a nickname originally given by Native American tribes to the members of the U.S. 10th Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army. Throughout the Indian wars, 20 percent of the U.S. Cavalry troopers were black and fought in more than 177 engagements. Their combat prowess, bravery, and tenaciousness on the battlefield inspired Indians to call them “Buffalo Soldiers.” Many believe the name symbolizes American Indian respect for the Buffalo Soldiers’ bravery and valor. Buffalo Soldiers down through the years have worn the name with pride. https://youtu.be/OHhiefylssA Video http://www.chrisnavarro.com/product/buffalo-soldier-monument/ - landing page For more information contact Chris Navarro Studio 307-259-7305

In 1995 I had the pleasure of inviting a member of the Buffalo Soldiers to speak to students at Ralph McGill Elementery in the Summer area of Atlanta. He also spoke and brought horses for students to ride at Royal Academy on Bouldercrest Rd. Dekalb County. I don't remember his name but he left a lasting impression on all of the students. I would very much like to reconnect with this member if he is still around. Thank you, Sandra
