Secret of the Buffalo Soldiers
By: CSM Milton B. Hazzard
About the Book
Often a forgotten or glossed-over part of our history as Americans, the Buffalo Soldiers were a unique fighting force in the nineteenth century. Made up of new recruits and black Civil War veterans who found it difficult to fit into the U.S. Army during peacetime, the Buffalo Soldiers were cavalry regiments sent west to keep the peace on the American frontier. These brave men fought to defend a country that had, until only recently, enslaved millions of their own kind.
Secret of the Buffalo Soldiers is one-part history text and one-part narrative. Readers will find a detailed look at the history of slavery and racism around the world intertwined with the story of a young man who took a chance, enlisted in the U.S. Army, and rose through the ranks to become one of the leaders of the Buffalo Soldiers.
