9th & 10th (Horse) Cavalry Association
Lawton / Fort Sill Chapter

Welcome to our website. As the President of the Lawton-Fort Sill Chapter of the 9th & 10th (Horse) Cavalry Association, I am extremely pleased to welcome you to our website. There are many people that do not know the history of the Buffalo Soldier’s or the responsibility that our chapter has taken on to keep the history alive.


The history of Southwest Oklahoma would have been forever altered but for the bravery and dedication to duty shown by the Buffalo Soldier’s during the battle of Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. Since the inception of the 9th and 10th Cavalry, 38th, 39th, 40th, 41st Infantry in 1866 and later combined as the 24th and 25th Infantry until 1944 the members of these units served with courage and devotion to duty.
