Buffalo Soldiers: A Forgotten Generation of History
Starting with George Washington and the Continental Army to the present, African-Americans have fought with distinction in all of our country's military engagements. Over 180,000 African-Americans served in the Union Army during the Civil War.

MISSION STATEMENT (501c3)
The Moses Williams Pacific Northwest Chapter of the Buffalo Soldiers was chartered as an affiliate of the National 9th and 10th (Horse) Cavalry Association in 1989. Our mission is to commemorate the historical significance of the role of conscripted African-Americans, who formed the 9th and 10th Cavalry Regiments of the United States Army and were known as the "Buffalo Soldiers". We are committed to preserving and recognizing the contributions of these brave men; educating others about the courage and integrity demonstrated by them; and establishing a standard of excellence and behavior worthy of these soldiers whose shoulders we stand upon.
