In the early 1900s, the 10th Cavalry Regiment was stationed at Fort Ethan Allen in Colchester. African-American soldiers made up the regiment, also known as the Buffalo Soldiers, at a time when the US Army was segregated. The soldiers and their families changed the racial diversity of the area until the regiment departed a few years later.
