Buffalo Soldiers Memorial "Buffalo soldiers" became the nickname of the black members of the 10th Cavalry Regiment of the U.S. Army in 1866, who are remembered most for their bravery and courage from the Civil War to World War II. Several monuments exist in their honor, including two in Kansas, where the original regiments were first formed. This one, commissioned by Gen. Colin Powell, was erected in 1992 in Leavenworth, Kan. The life-size statue illustrates a determined armed soldier leading his horse. Listen and learn more about black history @ www.blogTalkRadio.com/BlackHistory
