A former Buffalo Soldier recalls his life, from being a slave to sering in the US Army for forty years.

Born a slave,after the end of the Civil War he joins the US Army to become a "buffalo soldier" serving first at western frontier forts, then in the Dakotas, and later in the Spanish-American War.  From protecting pioneers to building roads and helping tame the West, he recalls the ups and downs of being a soldier. Historical Note and bibliography.

     
Excerpt
My sergeant, he's mean as a skunk//
and drills us through the day.//Must be a hundred times I hear him holler,// "Troopers, you got to train harder than the rest//'cause all the nation is watching you."
