The 9th U.S. Cavalry was one of the original six regiments of the regular U.S. Army set aside for black enlisted men, established in accordance with a Congressional act of 1866. The regiment participated in many frontier engagements during the 1870s and 1880s, including those against the Comanche, the Ute, and the Apache. Its members also patrolled during the Ghost Dance War with the Sioux and were among the last to leave the Pine Ridge Reservation in 1891.
