BUFFALO SOLDIERS WEST: BLACK SOLDIERS IN THE FRONTIER ARMY,(Old Army Press, Inc., $24.95).

An exhibition hosted in 1996 by the Colorado Historical Society forms the backdrop for thisvideo history of the "Buffalo Soldiers," the African-American troops of the U.S. Army that first gained fame during thenineteenth-century Indian Wars. Bill Gwaltney, a re-enactor, historian, and descendant of two Buffalo Soldiers, served as thehonorary curator of the exhibition and guides the viewer through the museum displays, expounding on the enviable servicerecord–which included, among other things, the highest re-enlistment and lowest desertion and alcoholism rates in the entirefrontier army–of the 9th and 10th Cavalry and the 23rd and 24th Infantry.
