A Nice Drive in the Glacial Hills

A Buffalo Soldier monument in Fort Leavenworth initiated our recent trek up the Glacial Hills Scenic Byway. The monument pays tribute to the 9th & 10th Cavalry Regiments. These groups of Black soldiers got their nickname in the Indian Wars. Native Americans said they were brave and fierce in battle - like the Buffalo. Since my son is a huge fan of the Civil War era Cavalry, this was a great way to start an historic and picturesque drive up the eastern edge of the state.
