History Moment

9th Calvary - How They Got their Name

Stories relationg to the origin of the legendary name "Buffalo Soldiers" are as varied as there are people to tell them.    Presented here are a few of the most accepted ideas regarding the name.  Some attribute it to the Indians likening the short curly hair of the black troopers to that of the buffalo.  Another possibility for the nickname was the heavy buffalo robes the soldiers wore on winter campaigns.  Others  say that When the American bison was wounded or cornered, it fought ferociously, displaying uncommon stamina and courage, identical to the black men in battle.


Their adversary, whether Indians, outlaws, Mexican revolutionaries, or gun smugglers, found that the Buffalo Soldiers could not easily be diverted from their trail.  Whatever the reason for the name, the Buffalo Soldier has come down in American military history as one of the proudest individuals of all.
