From the American Revolution to the present day, African Americans have stepped forward in their nation’s defense. Now, more than 150 years after Congress authorized blacks to serve in the Regular Army, peer into the eyes of formerly enslaved men who bravely bought their freedom on bloody Civil War battlefields—then trekked westward to Fort Garland and pursued Pancho Villa into Mexico. Historian Dr. John Langellier brings new vitality to a stirring subject, emphasizing the role of these “buffalo soldiers” in opening the West.
