This is a 25 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the Western Expansion in the United States - Buffalo Soldiers. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
“Buffalo Soldiers” originally were members of the U.S. 10th Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army, formed on September 21, 1866 at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. This nickname was given to the “Negro Cavalry” by the Native American tribes who fought against them. The term eventually became synonymous with all the African-American regiments formed in 1866.
Although several African-American regiments were raised during the Civil War as part of the Union Army, the “Buffalo Soldiers” were established by Congress as the first peacetime all-black regiments in the regular U.S. Army. The "Buffalo Soldiers" served in every campaign from the Civil War to World War II. They gained the reputation of being excellent fighters and many from their ranks have won the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Their excellent service record established helped to bring about major postwar changes in the traditional approach to employing Negro troops, giving them full recognition as brave American Soldiers.
