The Buffalo Soldiers Were African-American Men Who Served in U.S. Army Units Created After The Civil War.

During that conflict, despite strong opposition by most high-ranking officers, almost 200,000 black soldiers and sailors had served on the Union side, proving their ability time and again. As a result, the US government decided in 1867 to create several regular African-American military units, who would assist in the ongoing US expansion into Indian territories in the Plains and lands west.

The places where the new African-American regiments were sent were certainly some of the toughest known to the Army. They took part in much of the major fighting of the Indian wars, from the High Plains to the Southwest. In the process the Buffalo Soldiers garnered 23 Medals of Honor. It is said to have been the Plains Indians who gave them their nickname of “Buffalo Soldiers,” because of their courage as well as their hair, thought to be similar in appearance to the fur between a bison’s horns. It is a name the soldiers adopted with pride, as they knew how the Indians esteemed the buffalo.

African American regiments of the U.S. Army, e.g., Ninth and Tenth Cavalries and the Twenty-fourth and Twenty-fifth Infantries, who were organized after the Civil War and remained in service to World War II. It was common for any African American soldier in World War II to be identified by the public as a Buffalo Soldier.

Invisible Men of Honor-The Legend of the Buffalo Soldiers Trailer

This is a trailer of the documentary “The Invisible Men of Honor-The Legend of the Buffalo Soldiers”. It depicts the Black soldiers that served in WWII. They were part of a long line of Buffalo Soldiers that served the US from the Indian Wars of the Southwest to the Korean War. Produced and Directed by Jim White

After the Civil War, Congress authorized the creation of six segregated black regiments to serve in the peace-time army, under white officers. The Ninth and Tenth Cavalries and the 38th through 41st Infantries all composed of African-American soldiers—were thus formed.

The new cavalries were mainly stationed in the Southwest and the Great Plains, where it was their responsibility to build forts and maintain order in a frontier overrun by outlaws and occupied by Native Americans battling land-grabbing intruders. The black troops earned the nickname “Buffalo Soldiers”—as much for their ability in battle as for their dark skin—from the Cheyenne Indians.

The men of the Ninth and Tenth Cavalries further proved their abilities in the Spanish-American War and in guarding the Mexican border. Members of both regiments fought in Cuba, participating in the battle at San Juan Hill. The Tenth also served under General John J. Pershing in the expedition against Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa. In 1941, the two regiments merged to form the Fourth Cavalry Brigade, which was led by the army’s first African-American general, Benjamin O. Davis, Sr and would exist for only three years before all horse cavalry regiments were disbanded.

Black Dog- Chief Of The Osage Indians And Confederate Soldier

Black Dog II 1827-1910

1876 (note: battle axe) (14-years after he was Captain of Company B

1st Osage Battalion, C.S.A. Confederate States of America

fought two battles in NW Arkansas during the Civil War)

During the Civil War, Black Dog and many of the Osage Indians joined the Confederate States Army. While other Osage Indians joined the 9th Kansas Volunteers as Union supporters, but they were determined to be too wild and untrainable for military service. They were then discharged from Kansas military service. In 1861 about 50 Osage Indians joined Colonel Tom Livingston’s Missouri Home Guards and fought with General Price at Wilsons Creek.

Black Dog and some of his tribe joined the 1st Osage Battalion, C.S.A. around 1862 whose commander was Major Broke Arm. This military unit was composed of three companies. He served as a Captain of Company B. Military records are incomplete on their activities, but its believed that this unit was involved at Pea Ridge and Prairie Grove. 

He was elected Principal Chief of the Osages in 1880 and died in 1910. A creek near Hominy is named Black Dog Creek and a township in Tulsa County , Oklahoma, is named Black Dog Township.

Black Dog died around 68 years old. He was reported to be about 6ft’ 2, and weighed around 220 pounds. He had several sons and daughters. None of his sons survived to manhood.
