“Buffalo Soldier” is a reggae song written by Bob Marley and Noel “King Sporty” Williams and recorded by Jamaican band Bob Marley and the Wailers. It did not appear on record until the 1983 posthumous release of Confrontation, when it became one of Marley’s best-known songs. The title and lyrics refer to the black US cavalry regiments, known as “Buffalo Soldiers“, that fought in the American Indian Wars after 1866. Marley linked their fight to a fight for survival, and recasts it as a symbol of black resistance.
We all know the singer Bob Marley, and many of us know the song “Buffalo Soldier“. But something you may not know is the true meaning behind the song. In this post, I will be talking about the valiant buffalo soldiers of the US army. Here is a little background on them. They began as members of the US Army’s 9th and 10th Cavalry Regiments, which were formed on September 21, 1866. The name “buffalo soldiers” was given to them by Native Americans who claimed they had dark and curly hair like the buffalo. They went on to serve for eight decades, until they were disbanded on December 12, 1951.
