In Response To: BUFFALO SOLDIERS ON THE WESTERN FRONTIER ()
This post is somewhat late - on vacation. Thanks Bennie for your words re the Buffalo Soldiers. The last paragraph of your post sums it up succinctly. I would like for the true historians of African American Military History to identify themselves, and post a brief Curriculum Vitae of their scholarship, and accomplishments. A short Bibliography of their publications would also be helpful. To tell me that a story or statement is a myth, exaggeration or lie is not enough. Cite the sources/publications that carry the truth and where to find them. To "wax eloquently" is not enough. To ask provocative questions is an excellent method of historical analysis.
