Did You Know?
The term "Buffalo Soldier" derives from the Plains Indians who encountered and fought the African-American troops on the frontier in the late 19th century. It is said that the Indians referred to the black cavalry troopers as "Buffalo Soldiers" because their hair resembled that of the hair on the buffalo and because of their fierce nature of fighting, which emulated the buffalo as well.
