This outstanding documentary, which won the CINE Golden Eagle Award and the Bronze Cindy Award, chronicles the history and accomplishments of the all-black cavalries and infantries during the last half of the 19th century. Named the "Buffalo Soldiers" by their Cheyenne enemies, these brave and proud soldiers played an important role in the pacification and settlement of the American West, as well as many other military adventures in the 1800's.
Filmed on location where it actually happened over 100 years ago, and utilizing a rare collection of authentic Buffalo Soldier photographs -- the largest collection of its kind ever assembled -- the amazing story of the Buffalo Soldier is brought to life for the enjoyment of generations to come.
This production also includes the speech by General Colin Powell, then Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, dedicating the Buffalo Soldier Memorial at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, finally recognizing their substantial contribution to our national heritage.
