Buffalo Soldiers During the Civil War
February 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
RELIC will host Buffalo Soldiers During the Civil War. The program uses experts in military history and reenactments to talk about the 200,000 black soldiers who served in the Federal Army during the Civil War. After the war, the soldiers, called Buffalo Soldiers, decided not to return to a life of sharecropping and racial oppression. Instead, they decided to remain with the U.S. Army and battle outlaws and Indian raiders along the western frontier.
