The average Afro-American is taught very extensively about the Buffalo soldier which went out west representing the new United States against Native Americans
But what’s not spoken about is the militant group of ex-Afro-American soldiers called Loyal League, in U.S. history, described as an association originally organized in the North to inspire loyalty to the Union cause during the American Civil War. During Reconstruction, they spread to the South to ensure Republicans of support among newly enfranchised blacks.
Their creation sparked the creation of the KKK, the union league took part in rig elections, encouraging sharecropper slaves to revolt against the sharecropping masters.
