In honor of Black History Month, the Tucson Rodeo Parade Museum will present a special program “History Relived – The Life the Buffalo Soldier.” 

                        The first African American soldiers to arrive on Arizona at Fort Huachuca were the Buffalo Soldiers in the 1890s.  These soldiers served on the Western frontier following the American Civil War helping to protect the nation’s westward expansion by building roads, becoming the nation’s first national park rangers, and playing a critical role in protecting and building the infrastructure of the country’s vast public lands.  At History Relived you can learn about these extraordinary soldiers and how they came to be known as “Buffalo Soldiers.”

                        “History Relived” is February 27, 2021 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  Live entertainment by Martin Marquez from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Free admission; donations accepted.
