Yesterday’s answer:

(C)   African American soldiers so named by the Sioux Indians

The Buffalo Soldiers marched in the Pioneer Day parades and gave a “thrilling exhibition of horsemanship” on the parade grounds at Fort Douglas as their contribution to the jubilee festivities. These African American troopers were members of the 9th Cavalry, which was sent to join four companies of the 21st infantry in 1886 to found Fort Duchesne in the Uintah Valley. Their mission was to keep an eye on the Ouray and Uintah reservations. The Buffalo Soldiers also escorted Indian agents when the annual payment to the Utes arrived on the railroad. In 1898 rumors were flying that Butch Cassidy’s Wild Bunch was going to rob the $30,000 annuity between Price and Helper. When the gang from Robbers Roost learned that forty Buffalo Soldiers were guarding the loot, they kept their distance.

[note: The Sioux Indians nick named these soldiers the Buffalo Soldiers, because as the natives said, their hair felt like the hair on a Buffalo]
