Buffalo Soldiers FL at the Fountain of Youth
Please Note: This event is from 2013.
Today, witness history in the making as the Buffalo Soldiers FL mounted cavalry unit visits the Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park. Buffalo Soldiers FL "is a historical, re-enactment, public service organization," formed in 1992. "The goal of the group is to tell the 'true' story of the Black Men who first served in the Regular U.S. Army starting in 1866. They fought at San Juan Hill with Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders, were involved in the Mexican Border Wars in the early 1900s and fought overseas during WWI. The Regiment still exists in the US Army." This event is hosted and funded through the St. Augustine 450 Military Committee. Call (904) 829-3168 for exact times and for more information.
