Original Item: Only One Available. The 10th Cavalry Regiment is a unit of the United States Army. Formed as a segregated African-American unit, the 10th Cavalry was one of the original "Buffalo Soldier" regiments in the post–Civil War Regular Army. It served in combat during the Indian Wars in the western United States, the Spanish–American War in Cuba, Philippine–American War and Mexican Revolution. The regiment was trained as a combat unit but later relegated to non-combat duty and served in that capacity in World War II until its deactivation in 1944.
From the late 1860s on the Plain Indians called the black troopers of the US Army "buffalo soldiers". "It was the Indians who gave them the "buffalo soldiers" appellation, derived from the similarity of buffalo hair to the kinky, short black hair common to most African American males at the time.
The sign is a ½ inch piece of wood cut into the silhouette of a buffalo, which is detailed in yellow paint. Beneath the buffalo is the motto ready and forward in a scroll beneath. The condition is quite nice with nearly all paint retained.
