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.
