Buffalo Soldiers at Chinn Park Library
July 2, 2019 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
By the end of the Civil War, nearly 200,000 black soldiers were serving in the Federal Army. After the war, many decided not to return to a life of sharecropping and racial oppression, instead volunteering to battle outlaws and Indian raiders along the western frontier. This program uses dazzling reenactments and the expertise of military historians to tell the multifaceted story of the Buffalo Soldiers, a name given to black troops by their Native American adversaries. NOVA History Professor Alice Reagan will facilitate the Q&A portion of this program. Refreshments generously provided by the Friends of Chinn Park Regional Library.
