Mountain Man Buffalo Coat
When hearing about vintage authentic buffalo fur coats and the US Army some people might think about the Buffalo Soldiers. Buffalo Soldiers was the nickname given to African American troops in the 9th ,10th , 27th and 28th Cavalry regiments and the 24th and 25th Infantry regiments, all stationed in forts throughout the west during the 19th century. Various theories offer possible explanations for the Buffalo Soldiers nickname. Some say the Indians compared the hair of the African American soldiers to the shaggy, curly black hair of the buffalo. Others theorize that the Indians saw the dark-skinned soldiers in their long buffalo coats and made the obvious parallel, calling them Buffalo Soldiers. Whatever theory might be correct as to why Buffalo Soldiers got their nickname, it can be conclusively proven that they indeed wore buffalo coats, because there is a famous historical photograph of Buffalo Soldiers at Fort Keogh in Montana, ca. 1890, wearing bison fur coats.
