Artist's Description

Indians called the all black 10th Regiment Buffalo Soldiers because their kinky hair reminded the Indians of buffalo hide. The 10th Regiment quickly adopted the term as did the five all black regiments that followed (all with white officers) and proudly sported it down through the ages. The regiments served the Army bravely and were highly regarded despite their color.

While this reenactor at Vigilante Days in Tombstone, AZ has a Marshall’s badge, he wears the Buffalo Soldiers 9th Regimental hat. We didn’t stay for the skit, so don’t know the story. 279 views

Added an old paper texture in Elements, then made it Sepia, after which I erase the textures from his face.
