One Buffalo Soldier was from Newnan

There was one Buffalo Soldier who was from Newnan and we are in the process of doing research on him. This is the exhibit that was on loan from Don North of Carrollton, President of the Grierson Soldiers.
The exhibit on display at the Coweta County African American Heritage Museum and Research Center includes: An authentic Saddle from the 1904 regiment; Model of a Guide on (the flag used circa 1877); A hat (circa 1870's before they switched to the brown hat's used today); A pistol belt (circa 1865) and books about the Buffalo Soldiers.
