Unused vintage Buffalo Soldiers postage stamps from 1994 - face value is 29¢ each.
In 1866, the 9th and 10th Cavalry units and the 38th, 39th, 40th, and 41st Infantry units (later consolidated as the 24th and 25th Infantry) were formed. The units were comprised entirely of black soldiers – the first to serve in a peacetime army. They would come to be known as Buffalo Soldiers.
These two cavalry regiments and four infantry regiments were created by President Andrew Johnson and Congress after freed black slaves had proven their bravery during the Civil War.
For more than 20 years, these courageous men were a valuable part of developing the Great Plains and Southern Plains of the West. Overcoming numerous obstacles, including extreme discrimination and inferior uniforms, military equipment, and horses, these troops developed into remarkable fighting units.
