Anaheim’s own museum and cultural center in the heart of CtrCity has opened a brand new exhibit. Muzeo presents Buffalo Soldiers: an in-depth look at the contributions African-American men and women have made throughout US history.
The exhibit begins with the 1866 founding of the 9th and 10th Cavalry regiments, which were activated in Louisiana and Kansas, respectively, shortly after the end of the Civil War. These cavalry units engaged in combat with Indian tribes, and built forts and roads, as well as protecting settlers from Mexican revolutionaries.
The exhibit features details about the history of the Buffalo soldier, as well as interesting information about later African American nurses, soldiers, and astronauts. The exhibit runs until March 11th, and admission is $8 for adults and $5 for children. For more information, visit their website here.
