About Us

Military museums

The name “Buffalo Soldiers” is a term of respect.  It was given to the African American men of the 10th cavalry by the Cheyenne in 1867.  They were recognized for their fierce fighting ability.  The actual Cheyenne translation was “wild buffalo.”  In time, all African American soldiers would come to be called Buffalo Soldiers.

With a vast military history, Buffalo Soldiers often received the harshest assignments located at the most desolate posts.  Their efforts help to establish the new frontier.  You can learn more through our many exhibits and presentations.
