Buffalo Soldiers honored at Petco Park

Prior to the Padres game on Wednesday, the San Diego Buffalo Soldiers of the 9th and 10th Cavalry Association were honored. 

The Buffalo Soldiers, an all African-American regiment, were officially established after the Civil War by Congress.

This group tours Southern California to educate people about their history, explaining how the soldiers protected settlers coming from the East Coast and the part they played in the settlement of the area.
