Last Wednesday we released a new project and anyone who is at all familiar with military history you will likely know about the Buffalo Soldiers. This name was associated with units of African-American soldiers. The records in this collection record the names of soldiers who served over 50 years of time. It is a very appropriate collection for the season of remembering our military forebears.
The records are handwritten and there are a variety of form types but overall I didn’t find this project all that difficult to key. As I keyed I had a profound sense of wanting to be amongst these soldiers, to experience the hardships that they went through and to feel the pride they had in what they accomplishing. I hope that you enjoy keying this project as much as I did. Good luck and happy keying!
