WE HAVE A WINNER!

Week 7 Winners

LAST week we had a winner and several close seconds.  Our first winner was Russ Frank who found the token.  Next Evan and Madeline Alvarez. Then we also had word from Federico Monzon that he found the location.  Thanks to all who played!!

The Week 7 location was the Buffalo Soilders Museum and Light Guard Plaque at 3816 Caroline.

The Buffalo Soldiers National Museum is the only museum in the U.S. dedicated primarily to preserving the legacy and honor of the African-American soldier. It houses the largest repository of African-American military history in the world.

In fall 2012, the museum moved into its new 23,000-square-foot home at the Houston Light Guard Armory. The historic armory space is seven-times the museum’s previous space, giving the national museum significantly more room for reenactments, exhibits and lectures. The process of relocating the museum took nearly a decade to realize. 

The 10th cavalry, an all African-American Army unit, was nicknamed Buffalo Soldiers by Cheyenne warriors in 1867 out of respect for their fierce fighting ability. Over time, the term Buffalo Soldier was applied to all African-American soldiers.
