Buffalo Soldiers (on bikes)


When I first came across this image it stopped me in my tracks (or at least in my clicking)...excellent photo isn't it? It's a group of Buffalo Soldiers testing bikes before a journey. And being a Buffalonian I also like their title (though it is completely unrelated). I found the image at this site, which also includes an interesting story. If you'd like to learn more about Buffalo Soldiers, click here, here, or here. Click the image for a larger view...it'll fill your screen.

Buffalo Soldier 9 said...

Keeping history alive by telling that history:

Read the untold fictionalized historical novel, “Rescue at Pine Ridge”, the first generation of Buffalo Soldiers. The website is: http://www.rescueatpineridge.com This is the greatest story of Black Military History...5 stars Amazon international, and Barnes & Noble. Youtube commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iD66NUKmZPs

Rescue at Pine Ridge is the untold story of the 9th Cavalry from its Congressional conception in 1866, to the rescue of the famed 7th Cavalry by the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers. The 7th Cavalry was entrapped again, after the Little Big Horn Massacre, fourteen years later, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. If it wasn't for the 9th Buffalo Soldiers, there would of been a second massacre of the 7th Cavalry. This story is about, brutality, compassion, reprisal, bravery, heroism and gallantry.

Visit our Alpha Wolf Production website at: http://www.alphawolfprods.com and see our other productions, like Stagecoach Mary, the first Black Woman to deliver mail for the US Postal System in Montana, in the 1890's, spread the word.

Peace.
