Preface

This book examines the lives and military experiences of twenty-three black American soldiers who were awarded the Medal of Honor for valor between the Civil War and World War I. Serving in the Army just after the era of slavery ended, they participated in some of the more grueling frontier campaigns and America's first overseas war in half a century. These buffalo soldiers, as they came to be called, made important contributions to the fighting ability of the small Army of which they were members. They also served as role models and as reminders that blacks may have lacked opportunity but not soldierly skill or commitment to the nation. Along the way these heroes kept alive a tradition of courage under fire established during the Civil War and carried on by their successors in the twentieth century.
