The story of Walter E. Potts who lived to be 106-years-old and was the last surviving member of the Buffalo Soldiers that served in the 92nd Division and fought in France during World War I. Researched and written by his granddaughter, Eva Hogan, she discovered many little-known facts about African American contributions to the "Great War," as well as rare photographs of her grandfather's unit in France. The stories of the fabled Buffalo Soldiers are well-documented from their days in the early West, but Hogan was fortunate to capture first-hand from her grandfather the stories when the Buffalo Soldiers fought for their country in France, despite unjust treatment on the home front.
