Originally published in 1967, “The Buffalo Soldiers” was the first book of its kind to recognize the importance of African American units in the conquest of the West.
Decades later, with sales of more than 75,000 copies, The Buffalo Soldiers is a classic. In the newly-revised edition, the authors, William H. Leckie and Shirley A. Leckie, have expanded their original research to explore more deeply the lives of buffalo soldiers in the Ninth and Tenth Cavalry Regiments.
“The authors have improved on what was already a groundbreaking study that adds significantly to our knowledge of American expansionsim and, more important, of African Americans in the West.” – Oregon Historical Quarterly
