Buffalo Soldiers Study
The National Park Service (NPS) is conducting a study of alternatives to commemorate and interpret the role of Buffalo Soldiers in the early years of the national park system, recommend ways to enhance historical research, education, interpretation, and public awareness of their stewardship role in the national parks, and identify ways to further connect the Buffalo Soldiers story to the development of national parks and African-American military service following the Civil War. The NPS study team has conducted initial outreach and a scholars round table and has summarized those ideas in the Scholars Round Table and Outreach Summary found by clicking in the "Document List" link on the left side of this page. We invite you to share your thoughts about the ideas presented in this document and to share additional information or suggestions that you feel the NPS should consider in this study.
