National Call for Nominations of Buffalo Soldiers
USCTI at Hartwick Issues National Call for Nominations of Buffalo Soldiers’ Families
The United States Colored Troops Institute for Local History and Family Research (USCTI) at Hartwick College has issued a call for communities nationwide to identify extended families of the famed "Buffalo Soldiers," a collective name for the four African American regiments of the U.S. Army, e.g., Ninth and Tenth Cavalries and the Twenty-fourth and Twenty-fifth Infantries, who were organized after the Civil War and remained in service to World War II. It was common for any African American soldier in World War II to be identified by the public as a Buffalo Soldier.
