U.S.A. 9th Cavalry
This African Soldier wearing his non G.I. black derby on his
white charger at Fort Huachuca Arizona, he was one of those guys
who probably saved Teddy Roosevelt ass, at San juan Hill in Cuba, and helped to secure the Philippines with one of his buddies Captain Peter McCown, another African American, McCown was born in Detroit at the close of the Civil War. He enlisted in the army in 1880, while other young Africans born in America, became Cowboys he became a Calvary man. He Received a Purple Heart and a promotion for an Indian Campaign in the Western territories. Upon reflection; in a county that abused and mistreated Africans, Indians, and Philippines, a mistaken allegiance to America.
THIS IS A PART OF THE STORY OF AFRICAN IN THE OLD WEST
If we think of the AfricanCowboy in isolation as a product of slavery with no past
history and neglect to look back to a time on the continent of Africa when Black
Men and Women created the first civilization and built empires. then we would see
the young AfricanCowboys and Women of the Old West were just continuing the
traditions of their ancestors back on the continent, where they were some of the
best horse men and cattle breeders bar non.
