Buffalo Soldier Monument

Fort Leavenworth
Was dedicated in 1992 to the memory of the 9th & 10th Cavalry Regiments comprised of black soldiers. Headquartered in Louisiana and Leavenworth, Kansas, these troopers proved their bravery and valor throughout the Indian Wars. They won the respect of the Cheyenne warriors who named them "Buffalo Soldiers," a badge of honor accepted and worn with pride by these black cavalry troopers.

The project, initiated by General Colin Powell, was dedicated in July 1992 and is open to the public.
