CRAP !!
Although approximately 180,000 African Americans had served in the Union
Army during the Civil War, they were not allowed to be a part of the regular
peacetime Army.
In 1866, however, Congress passed the Army Reorganization Act, a law that
doubled the size of the regular Army, including the addition of six African
American regiments, the first professional black soldiers in the United
States Army. By 1869, these six regiments were consolidated into four units,
the 9th and 10th Cavalry and the 24th and 25th Infantry.

These men came to be known as the Buffalo Soldiers, a name reportedly given
to them by Native Americans for the soldiers’ curly dark hair that resembled
Buffalo fur; though some historic accounts state the name was given as a nod
to the black soldiers’ strong fighting power.

Among the earliest stewards of the nation’s national parks were soldiers
from segregated black regiments. Starting in the 1890s, the Buffalo
Soldiers, who had earned valor fighting in the Indian Wars and
Spanish-American War, added park ranger to their titles and played a
critical role in protecting and building the infrastructure of the country’s
vast public lands.
