George Pettigrew

At the most recent Delta Cultural Center Civil War Round Table we were honored to have a great presenter named George Pettigrew. He is a Navy veteran and Executive Vice President and Historian of the Alexander-Madison Chapter of the Kansas City 9th and 10th Cavalry Association. His presentation of “From Slave to a Union Soldier” focused on a young man’s journey to become a U.S. soldier on the Frontier. Native Americans called these African American soldiers “Buffalo Soldiers.” We are all looking forward to his next visit.
