This painting of Sargeant Emanuel Stance of the 9th U.S. Cavalry--one
of the famous Buffalo Soldier outfits-depicts the engagement with
Apache Indians at the Battle of Kickapoo Springs, north of Fort McKavett,
May 19-2o, 1870, where Stance became the first African American sol-
dier to win the Medal of Honor for Valor in the Indian Wars. This issue of
the Quarterly features an article byJ. Brett Cruse, beginning on page 169,
which focuses on archeological investigations of the Battle of Red River,
an important conflict in the Indian Wars taking place in Texas during the
187os. The compelling story of Sargeant Stance and many other recipi-
ents of the Medal of Honor in frontier Texas is told in Charles M. Neal's
forthcoming TSHA publication, "Valor Across the Lone Star: The Con-
gressional Medal of Honor in Frontier Texas."
