An African American man, of the 10th Calvary (aka Negro Calvary), who faught in the Civil War. Term used by the Native Americans to describe the Black man's wolly hair, because it appears to be like that of the buffalo's. Black soldiers of the U.S. army who fought Indians and policed the frontier in the years following the Civil War. The term was derived from the men's hair which the Indians thought resembled the fur of the buffalo. Not all of the recruits were former slaves; most were free Blacks of Northern parentage and many had served with distinction during the Civil War. Legendary icon, Bob Marley immortalized the calvary in the reggae song, Buffalo Soldiers.
