Nat’l Buffalo Soldiers Gathering & Monument Commemoration

Wallace Visitor Center

June 17

Join the festivities honoring Buffalo Soldiers on the Quasquicentennial (125th) anniversary of one of their most awesome accomplishments: an arduous 1900-mile cycling trip from Missoula to St. Louis to test the military effectiveness of the bicycle in battle. They completed the 1897 mission in 41 days on one speed, 55 .lbs cycles. The commemoration honors that achievement as well as Buffalo Soldiers’ contributions in the region, including their several deployments to Wallace and North Idaho  to quell 1890s labor strife and rescuing North Idaho communities during the Great Fire of 1910.
