Anthony Powell: Park Service and Buffalo Soldiers
Description:
Lecture, Saturday, October 1, 2016 Before the National Park Service was created in 1916, many of the famous places we know today as national parks—such as Yosemite and Sequoia—were patrolled by U.S. Army units, including the Buffalo Soldiers. Anthony Powell presents a first-person, in-costume living history interpretation of a Buffalo Soldier in the National Parks circa 1904 and shares vivid background about the role these soldiers played in managing and protecting parklands.
