Buffalo Soldiers visited campus on Feb.12, 2019. All Texas History students joined together in the lecture hall to watch a presentation about their lives in the 1800s.

So you may ask who are Buffalo soldiers? Buffalo soldiers were African-American soldiers who served on the western frontier. The Texas History teachers invited them to our school for a presentation to students about how they lived in the 1800s, the things that they used to do hunting, and weapons when they went to the battlefield.

Some interesting facts learned were:

  • The interesting toys children used to play with in the 1800s, such as paddles with chickens
  • They got their Buffalo name from the Indians
  • They would learn how to count by playing cards
