Dr. Andrew Huebner, professor of Modern U.S. History, was awarded a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Public Scholars Grant to support his current book project, titled “Buffalo Soldiers and the Making of United States Empire, 1866–1917.” As Dr. Huebner describes the project:

“This book tells the story of the first Black regiments in the history of the US regular army, from their creation in 1866 to American intervention in the First World War. It recovers the critical role of Black regulars (or ‘buffalo soldiers’) in spreading US empire to the West, Caribbean, and Pacific. Yet as agents of state authority, those men often became targets of white supremacy, and when targeted by racist attacks, they could become exemplars of resistance—most consequentially in 1917 in Houston, Texas. A rebellion of Black soldiers against police brutality there led to the largest murder trial in US history and nineteen executions, hastening relegation of the four Black regiments to menial, peripheral tasks. The rise and fall of the Black regular testifies to a durable contradiction of American life, one of ongoing and urgent concern for the humanities: that a country so dependent upon people of color for national aggrandizement only unevenly offers them justice and safety.”

Dr. Huebner will receive $60,000 across 12 months as he completes the project, which began in January 2024. When complete, “Buffalo Soldiers” will appear with Liveright/W.W. Norton.
