The Black Infantry in the West 1869-1891

DESCRIPTION

After nearly 200,000 African-American soldiers fought in the Civil War, Congress enacted legislation to authorize regiments of cavalry and infantry for service in the West. The Ninth and Tenth cavalries won fame as buffalo soldiers in the Indian wars, nearly overshadowing the critical support role of the Twenty-fourth and Twenty-fifth infantries. Now Arlen L. Fowler brings to light the story of African-American infantry service from 1869 to 1891 in Texas, Indian Territory, the Dakotas, Montana, and Arizona.

At first the infantry's primary role was to escort trains and stagecoaches build roads and telegraph lines, and guard supply lines, with only an occasional battle against raiding Indians and outlaws.
