Buffalo Soldier Expedition Map

The virtual visitor experience of the Buffalo Soldiers' four day tragic journey shows the approximate relationship between the historic route and modern day landmarks. A historic overlay map, attributed to historian Michael Harter, illustrates the route that began on July 26 and ended on July 30 near Double Lakes.

The BSE1877 introduction starts at Fort Concho and continues at Bull Creek. Double Lakes is the last place water was available to the unknowing soldiers as they set out across the Llano Estacado.
