"History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.”
The heroic efforts of the Original Buffalo Soldiers led to the creation of a motorcycle club named in their honor. The Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club of North Carolina was formed on June 1st, 2001. The soul idea was to have Fayetteville and the State of North Carolina represented by some of the finest military and civilian personnel and also uphold the legacy of the Buffalo Soldiers from the 9th and 10th Calvary.
The original Chapter started with 14 members it has grown to over 49 members, and the start of another Chapter in Greensboro NC with 14 Members. The Chapter is very much involved in our community and communities around the State of North Carolina. We have participated in many events (i.e. we have supported Christmas gift for the Boys and Girls club, donated over 31 Thanksgiving Food Basket per year to needed Families for Thanksgiving during the last 5 years, donated over 31 Christmas Food Basket and Christmas presents for the kids of the families we supported for Christmas, participate in the Fayetteville State University Parade, Veteran Day Parade, Oxford Parade, Roseboro Christmas Parade, Fayetteville NC MLK Parade, Dunn NC MLK Parade, 2003-2007, Monroe NC MLK Parade 2005,Greensboro NC MLK Parade 2007, Buffalo Soldiers Horse Calvary Annual Parade Greensboro NC 2006, Provide proctors for some of our Schools proctor program, The Chapter awards several scholarships to students for college, provided support for the displaced families of Hurricane Katrina with clothes, furniture, and supplies.
