It is not often that we are given an opportunity to step back in time and see what things were like during the settlement of Texas. Thanks to a group of re-enactors and the Daingerfield State Park, visitors will have an opportunity to experience life in frontier times, as well as see the Buffalo Soldiers in action.

The term “Buffalo Soldiers” first referred to the members of the 10th Cavalry regiment of the United States Army. The term was given by Native American tribes who were a part of the Indian Wars.
