John Langellier - Southwest History and Scouting with Buffalo Soldiers - John P. Langellier is a historian from Tucson. John is a prolific author who's written a LOT of books. His latest covers one of the Buffalo Soldier units from Southern Arizona. It's an interesting note that Buffalo Soldier is not a very descriptive term. US units throughout the west employed black soldiers in a variety of capacities...but damn did they do it well in the Ft. Bowie/Huachuca region.
You will LOVE his latest book Scouting with the Buffalo Soldiers: Lieutenant Powhatan Clarke, Frederic Remington, and the Tenth U.S. Cavalry in the Southwest amzn.to/3zBk0yA
Pete A Turner grabbed the episode with John as he began his road trip. As we consider the role of race in history...we're fascinated by the presence of the multi-ethnic violence that made the Wild West bloody and yet filled with opportunity. We'll have more from John...you're gonna love his history.
