WHAT IS AN OFFICIAL ARIZONA CENTENNIAL LEGACY PROJECT?
An Arizona Centennial Legacy Project accurately portrays a significant aspect of Arizona history, is educational and everlasting.

African Americans have served proudly in every great American war. In 1866, through an act of Congress legislation was adopted to create six all African-American Army units. The units were identified as the 9th and 10th Cavalry and the 38th, 39th 40th, and 41st Infantry regiments. The four Infantry regiments were later reorganized to form the 24th and 25th Infantry regiments. These fighting men represented the first Black professional soldiers in a peacetime army. The nickname "Buffalo Soldiers" began with the Cheyenne warriors in 1867. The actural Cheyenne translation was "Wild Buffalo". This name was given out of respect for the fierce fighting ability of the 10th Cavalry. Over time, "Buffalo Soldiers" became a generic term for all African-American soldiers.
