About Us

Buffalo Soldier Educational and Historical Committee

The Buffalo Soldier Educational and Historical Committee is working under the Tax-Free Umbrella of the National 9th and 10th (Horse) Cavalry Association. We have nearly a thirty-year history of building monuments and programs to honor, recognize and enhance the awareness of African-American military units and individuals. In addition to the 13-foot Horse and Rider Buffalo Soldier Monument,  we have built monuments honoring: General Colin L. Powell, the first African-American Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the first African American to serve as Secretary of State; Lt Henry O. Flipper, the first African-American graduate of West Point and the first African-American Officer assigned to the Buffalo Soldiers (10th Cav); the first Black Paratroopers - the 555th; General Roscoe Robinson, the Army's first African-American four star General; and PVT Cathay Williams, the only known Female Buffalo Soldier.  She was conscripted as a cook and laundress for the Union Army during the Civil War. Following the Civil War she joined the 28th Infantry, Company A at Jefferson Barracks, outside Saint Louis, Missouri, under the name of William Cathey.
