Buffalo Soldier Regiment: History of the Twenty Fifth United States Infantry, 1869-1926


Drawing on a wealth of official records, reports, and personal recollections, this book reconstructs the experience of the 25th regiment from its formation in 1869 through its service in the border town of Nogales, AZ in 1926.  Following the troops as they move all over the country, we see soldiers engaged in scouting, escort and guard duty, and road building; skirmishing with Indians; quelling labor riots; fighting forest fires; and even campaigning in Cuba and the Philippines.  From its moments of drama to its depictions of garrison life and accounts of the regiment's Bicycle Corps and baseball team, this volume preserves a vital part of America's complex history.
