SHARE New buffalo soldiers

Making their first appearance at Wellsville's Festival of the American West, the New Buffalo Soldiers display their horsemanship and marksmanship. The group, which set up an encampment, is named after the companies of blacks formed after the Civil War. Stationed at Fort Duchesne for a time, the Buffalo Soldiers played an important role in the West. The nine-day festival ends today.
