  Donate Buffalo Soldier Memorial Fund
Buffalo Soldier regiments of the U.S. Army were segregated units, composed of African-American men, formed just a year after the end of the Civil War, and played a role in the establishment of the American West. The monument commemorates men known as Buffalo Soldiers. Former slaves and children of former slaves, they fought in the Indian Wars of the late 19th century and helped expand the American frontier. They helped build roads and telegraph lines, protected settlers, and even guarded surveyors mapping the borders of Colorado in the 1870s. The unit was desegregated, along with the rest of the Army, after World War II.

A representative from each organization selected has five minutes to plead their case. Afterward, everyone casts their vote.
