Summary
"Originally published in 1967, William H. Leckie's The Buffalo Soldiers was the first book of its kind of recognize the importance of African American units in the conquest of the West. In this revised edition, the authors further explore the lives of buffalo soldiers in the Ninth and Tenth Cavalry Regiments, showing that they were increasingly confident in their fighting ability and, above all, determined to prove themselves worthy of their newly entitled citizenship ... Written in accessible prose that includes a synthesis of recent scholarship, The Buffalo Soldiers: A Narrative of the Black Cavalry in the West, Revised Edition delves further into the social impact of being an African American soldier in the nineteenth century. This work also explores the experiences of the soldiers' families at frontier posts. In a new epilogue, the authors summarize developments in the lives of buffalo soldiers after the Indian Wars and discuss contemporary efforts to memorialize them in film, art, and architecture"--Jacket
