This tee is our tribute to the famous buffalo soldiers who fought during the Civil War.
There seem to be three possible reasons for the name "Buffalo soldier". One, it is said that the curly hair of the soldiers reminded them of the Buffalo. Two, they were given the name because their fierce, brave nature reminded them of the way buffalos fought. Third, it may have been because they wore thick coats made from buffalo hide during winter. Whatever the reason, the term was used respectfully and with honor.
