Buffalo Soldiers guarded the western frontier, winning eighteen Medals of Honor. Formed in 1866, they also served in the Spanish-American War (1898), the War in the Philippines (1899-1901), World War II (1941-1946), and the Korean War (1950-1953) . It might appear that some of those events transpired a long time ago. However, Jones Morgan, the last Buffalo Soldier who served in both the West and the Spanish American War, died at age 110 in August, 1993.
