Buffalo Soldiers: Military Heroes of the Southwest

September 20, 2014

Buffalo Soldiers: Military Heroes of the Southwest, a Chautauqua.

Mr. Hampton, as Lt. Matthias Day, and one or more of the troopers of the Buffalo Soldiers Society of New Mexico, along with over 50 period artifacts used by the Buffalo Soldiers, bring the history of the Black cavalry to life. From Medal of Honor recipients to the common trooper, from Indian battles to battles with lawbreakers, learn how a small number of Black troopers made a difference in the lives of law-abiding citizens.

Funded grant program of the New Mexico Humanities Council.  New Mexico Humanities Council is a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities
