Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers National Monument

I've been adding several new places to the Duckwyn Travel app in support of Black History month. The complete list is available on our Black History Month page.

​The ​Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers National Monument captures the life of Charles Young. Charles' father fought for his family's freedom as part of the 5th United States Colored Heavy Artillery Regiment during the Civil War. Charles would follow in his father's military footsteps. He graduated from West Point (the 3rd African-American to do so). He later would become a Buffalo Soldier in the United States Army. Upon his death in 1922, Charles Young was the highest ranking African-American officer in the United States Army.

To learn more about his life visit the Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers National Monument in Ohio.
