Wisconsin Veterans Museum Part Two: The Spanish-American War

Visitors to Madison, the capital of Wisconsin, would do well to visit the Wisconsin Veterans Museum. It is a small, but extremely well designed museum, and admission is free. Today I am sharing a few swords and other items from their exhibit on the Spanish-American War. Tomorrow we will see items from their exhibits on the Mexican Border War and World War One.

9th Cavalry NCOs – 1889

The First African American soldiers to arrive in Arizona at Fort Huachuca were the Buffalo Soldiers in the 1890’s; the 9th and 10th Cavalries and the 24th and 25th Infantry Regiments. The Fort Huachuca Buffalo Soldiers distinguished themselves in the Spanish American War and the charge up San Juan Hill. They were part of the Punitive Expedition into Mexico and were sent to Camp Naco, Arizona, Camp Little in Nogales and other locations in Arizona to guard the Arizona Borders during the Mexican Revolution.
