Summary
When Teddy Roosevelt and the Rough Riders charged up San Juan Hill during the Spanish-American War, their success was ensured by a dedicated corps of black soldiers-- the so-called Buffalo Soldiers-- who fought by Roosevelt's side during his legendary campaign. Tuccille takes a closer look at common historical legend tells the inspiring story of the first African American soldiers to serve during the post-slavery era, first in the West and later in Cuba. When full equality, legally at least, was still a distant dream, they fought heroically and demonstrated their own military prowess, often in the face of incredible discrimination from their fellow soldiers and commanders
