Description

The Buffalo Soldiers National Museum is proud to announce its 100th Commemoration of the Camp Logan Mutiny. In 1917, a clash between police and Buffalo Soldiers erupted in Houston leaving 17 civilians and officers and 4 Buffalo soldiers dead. This little-known tragedy led to the largest murder trial and largest court-martial in U.S. history.
