Buffalo Soldier history presentation to the South Park Neighborhood Association

Our chapter received a request from the South Park Neighborhood Association via e-mail to do a Buffalo Soldier history presentation on July 11, 2016.  The presentation took place at the Quincey Douglas Neighborhood Center, proposed site for the Tucson’s Buffalo Soldier Memorial.  Presenters included Trooper Frank Bothwell, GSAAC, Dr. Michael Engs, local Buffalo Soldier Historian, and Trooper Charles Young of the Territory of Arizona Buffalo Soldiers.

Dr. Michael Engs and Trooper Charles W. Young discuss the presentation details.
