Trooper Mark Matthews




An eager reporter and illustrator named Frederic Remington traveled to Fort Grant, Arizona to soldier with the "Tenth Dragoons." He chronicled the exploits of the 10th Cavalry in the Century Magazine article "A Scout With The Buffalo Soldiers." Remington later wrote "Vagabonding with the Tenth Horse" which was published in Cosmopolitan in 1897.

"They may be tired and they may be hungry, but they do not see fit to augment their misery by finding fault with everybody and everything. In this respect they are charming men with whom to serve...As to their bravery, I am often asked 'Will they fight?' That is easily answered. They have fought many, many times." - Frederic Remington
