‘Buffalo Soldiers and Officers

‘Buffalo Soldiers and Officers of the Ninth Cavalry’ a good read

How does a nation deal with racial problems? The United States tried a bold new approach in 1866 when the government formed the 9th Cavalry of black men. Known as Buffalo Soldiers, as named by the Indians “because, like the buffalo, they were wooly.” Their story is a masterfully told story, “Buffalo Soldiers and Officers of the Ninth Cavalry, 1867-1898,” researched and written by Charles L. Kenner and published by the University of Oklahoma Press.



Dear Heloise: Do you have any suggestions or recipes for an overabundance of cooked oatmeal cereal? Our church group makes breakfast every other month (pancakes, eggs, biscuits and gravy, fruit and oatmeal), and there is usually a pot of oatmeal left over. I hate to see this thrown out but have no ideas on how to transition this into something else. Please help. -- Vickie D., Burke, Va.
