Danny Glover stars in this historical epic of former slaves turned United States Army recruits—the BUFFALO SOLDIERS. Freed by the Emancipation Proclamation of 1862, many ex-slaves head west in search of a new life far from Southern oppression. In 1866, a year after the end of the Civil War, the U.S. Army enlists black men to fight Native Americans on the Western frontier. Nicknamed "BUFFALO SOLDIERS" by the Plains Indians, these African-American troops also string miles of telegraph ...wire, escort settlers, cattle and railroad crews through the hostile West and patrol the wild United States-Mexican border in this moving drama that chronicles an untold, exciting part of United States history.
