Arriving in May of 1899, the men of Company L, 24th Infantry, United States Army served their country from northern Lynn Canal. These Buffalo Soldiers fought a war on two fronts: protecting the community of Skagway while facing discrimination from the same people they served. Helping to tell their story is a new, ongoing project at Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park.
