The monument pays tribute to the 9th&nbsp;&amp; 10th&nbsp;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.
