Buffalo Soldier Day 2018


Included in the celebration of Dream Week in 2018, the UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures is providing visitors a chance to imagine the every day life of Buffalo Soldiers. Buffalo Soldiers were regiments of African American soldiers in the post-Civil War era who scouted and mapped Texas lands; protected settlers, traders and the mail; installed telegraph lines, and carried out dozens of other tasks. At the event, visitors will be able to pack a ruck sack for a frontier patrol, survey maps, track animals, and participate in games that Buffalo Soldiers played off duty. The event will take place at the UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures on January 14th from 12pm-4pm. The event is free as a part of Free Second Sunday.
