阿伦斯沃思水牛城士兵访谈

2021年9月15日

水牛战士重现者大卫-琼斯骑兵和他的马术伙伴。

阿伦斯沃思镇是第一个由非裔美国人建立、资助和管理的城镇,在即将于10月9日举行的重修活动之前,Amtrak San Joaquins的工作人员有机会与活着的历史水牛城士兵重演者大卫-琼斯警官进行了交谈。我们很高兴与大卫-琼斯警官谈论水牛城士兵的独特历史和贡献以及他们与艾伦沃斯镇的联系。

以下是我们与戴夫谈话的一些摘录。

请务必在即将于10月9日举行的重建节上找到骑兵大卫-琼斯,在那里你可以穿越时空,看到一个真正的水牛城战士的生活。

 

水牛战士是一个真正了不起的团体,他们于1866年根据1865年的国会法案首次成立,该法案承认近20万名美国黑人参加内战的贡献。水牛城士兵以某种方式一直持续到1951年。被称为 "水牛战士 "的全黑军团在西进过程中为国家服务,他们保护我们的国家公园,在总统访问加利福尼亚时保护他,甚至在最近的朝鲜战争中在海外作战。

尽管水牛城士兵每天都面临着种族主义,但他们为国家服务,今天是在逆境中奉献的证明。
