The Beginning Of the Baltimore Chapter
In 1995 under the leadership of Houston D. Wedlock and John M. Craig, an informal meeting was held at the Officers Club at Fort George G. Meade to consider the organizing of a chapter of the Buffalo Soldiers in the Baltimore, Maryland region. It was unanimously agreed that there was enough interest and that there is a need for such an organization because Maryland has history of the Buffalo Soldiers. The next meeting in September 1995 at the Howard County Public Library in Columbia, Maryland the group adopted the name of "Baltimore Metropolitan Area Chapter" as the official name of the group. Adopted as our mission was "To strengthen the awareness and enlighten the public on the role of the Buffalo Soldiers, in American History." Offices were established, and a slate to fill those offices was established. It was agreed that voting to fill the various offices will be done at the third meeting of the group.
The third meeting occurred on October 21, 1995 at the Howard County Public Library in Columbia, Maryland. Officers for the newly established organization, "Baltimore Metropolitan Area Chapter of the 9th and 10th Buffalo Soldiers Association" were selected.
A letter of introduction to petition the Buffalo Soldiers 9th & 10th (Horse) Cavalry National Association (An Official Military Unit) for recognition of our chapter as an entity under their umbrella was drafted and submitted by the elected commander, Trooper Richard Robinson. The charter was granted to the Baltimore Metropolitan Area Chapter on July 25, 1996.
