The Buffalo Soldiers in Cuba



Teddy’s Big Day—But the Buffalo Soldiers Did the Heavy Lifting  7/1/2012 Heretic, Rebel, a Thing to Flout 

Buffalo Soldiers at San Juan Hill  6/1/1998 Army History: "All eyes that were not on TR seemed to focus on the Buffalo Soldiers. For the first time they stood front and center on the national stage. A number of mainstream (that is, white) periodicals recounted their exploits, as nurses in the yellow fever hospital at Siboney as well as on the battlefield, and reviewed their history, mostly favorably.9 Books by black authors recounted the regiments? service in Cuba and in previous wars and reminded those who cared to pay attention that the war with Spain did not represent the first instance in which black soldiers answered the nation?s call to arms.10 In an age of increasing racism that was hardening into institutionalized segregation throughout the South and affecting the lives of black Americans everywhere, the Buffalo Soldiers were race heroes."
