Isom Dart ~ A Black Cowboy It seems history has conspired against the many cowboys of color. Isom Dart is one of those black cowboys whose adventures are often left untold. Born a slave in Arkansas and later freed by the Civil War he rode West. His pursuits ranged from rodeo rider to cattle rustler. His life came to an abrupt end when he was shot down in Cold Springs, Colorado by an unknown assailant on October 3, 1900. #Black_History.

WWI African American soldiers, c. 1916-1917. Probably the 'Harlem Hellfighters'. ~ I've never understood why black soldiers fought in the First World War but were relegated to a minor role in World War Two. They served in WWII but mostly as support and artillery not front line or paratroops.

Osborne Anderson was the only African American to Survive, among the five Black Men that accompanied John Brown on the raid on Harpers Ferry!  In 1861 Anderson wrote A Voice From Harper’s Ferry. He believed that southern accounts were biased, he felt compelled to give an account of the event from the raiders’ perspective. http://www.cafepress.com/gkcstore
