African American men and women have served in every conflict in U.S. history. After the Civil War, the Buffalo Soldiers shaped the history of the U.S. Army. After analyzing primary and secondary sources, students will complete a tic-tac-toe activity to learn more about the Buffalo Soldiers. Students will synthesize this information to complete a graphic organizer and discuss new questions and ideas raised by the lesson.
