Re: Character and characters
In Response To: Re: Character and characters ()
Tom since the term was used throughout the period talked about could we not assume that black regulars used it or were aware of it? Or are you suggesting maybe they (black regulars)were ashamed of using it? Then my next question would be how many first person naratives other than Ruben Waller's are out there and would I be right in making the conclusion since nothing else has been found that the term was not used by black regulars? Keeping in mind that the 10th cavalry would use the Buffalo as part of it's regimental crest starting in 1910 seems to me there might be a connection when you put into play that many old timers who served during the period talked about were still in the service!
Always My Best
