A group of regional citizens and nationally known public figures are planning the fourth Buffalo Soldier public art memorial in America to commemorate Lakeland’s unique connection to the Spanish American War. Platform Art will commission a public art sculpture incorporating student imagery inspired by Buffalo Soldier re-enactors and historians, interpreting the contributions of the 10th Cavalry’s successful campaign to win the Spanish American War.
The Buffalo Soldier monument will be dedicated on Veterans Day, in Lakeland’s Veterans’ Memorial Park, November 2021.
