About

The Alexander/Madison Chapter – Greater Kansas City /Leavenworth Area  9th & 10th (Horse) Calvary Association was formed in 1966. The first President Trooper James Madison served with the  10th Calvary in North Africa around 1944. Our current President is Trooper J.R Bruce-Regimental Sargent Major.  Vice President Carrie Milton. Secretary Barbra Baker, Public Relations Bill Young, Treasure Donna Madison, Photographer Colonel Len Nevels and a host of dedicated members. It is an honor and privilege for our members to exhibit the legacy of the Buffalo Soldier.      

Authentication is important to us; we can and we will uphold  the integrity of the Buffalo Soldier’s rich history.  With enthusiasm we are able to display original Buffalo Soldier Artifacts during special events and in museums.  On several occasions with a modest cast, we have presented an original play “Fiddlers Green” written by member Donna Madison.

It is our hope to be Ready and Forward to educate the public on the impact the Buffalo Soldier has made on this Great Nation of Ours. The battles he endured whether on the plains or with local hostels, it is with great tenacity that he soldiered on. We honor him.

  2. Good Morning,
    I had the honor and privilege of working with James “Alex” Alexander back in the 80s. He was a friend and a mentor to me. Indeed, he has had a profound influence on my life, for which I will be eternally grateful. I haven’t seen him in quite some time and have always regretted losing touch. I was wondering if all was well with him and his family.

    Thank you for your time.

    Matthew.
