Quick Overview

9th Cavalry Regimental Crossed Sabers. Measures 2-1/4" wide. Strong zinc alloy pin with tarnish-free bright gold finish.


The 9th Cavalry Regiment was constituted on 28 July 1866 in the Regular Army as Company F, 9th Cavalry. In August of 1866, Major General Sheridan was authorized to raise, among others, one regiment of colored cavalry to be designated the 9th Regiment of U. S. Cavalry.


The regiment organized in September and mustered between September 1866 and March 1867. Its first commanding officer was Colonel Edward Hatch. The men enlisted for five years and received $13 per month, plus room, board and clothing. Later they were dubbed "Buffalo Soldiers". The regiment's motto was, and remains, "We Can, We Will".


During the Vietnam war, the 1st of the 9th Cavalry earned 3 Presidential Unit citations and 5 Valourous Unit Citations. 1/9 Cavalry fought in some of the fiercest battles of the Vietnam war, and is credited with approximately 50% of the enemy casualties for the entire 1st Cavalry Division, which earned the ominous nickname "Headhunters."
