Re: Seeking Information on the 9th Calvary in 1900
during the spanish american war, the 9th and 10th calvary regiment were african american regiments who attacked and conquered the san juan hill. contrary to popular belief, these african american regiments took this hill and not teddy roosevelt and his famous rough riders. the african american troops were sent in first to take the brunt of the hits from the spanish and then teddy was going in for the kill and the glory.
