On May 1, 2021, Henry Crawford, the retired Curator of History at the Museum of Texas Tech University, will present a program about the “Buffalo Soldiers Protecting the Santa Fe Trail” at the Rice County Historical Society’s Coronado Quivira Museum. For four decades, Crawford has shared his expertise on western frontier, economic, and military history at museums, schools and historic sites nationwide.
