The TPWD Buffalo Soldier program and Texas Buffalo Soldier Association color guard will post the colors to begin the "Capital Salute". The purpose of the ceremony is to commemorate Senate Bill 1457 passed in 1999 which designated July as Texas Buffalo Soldier Heritage Month. Immediately following the brief ceremony is a police escorted charity ride to Mancuso Harley Davidson where over 5,000 dollars of proceeds will be donated to a local charity.The National “Capitol Salute” Ceremony is free and open to the public. The Buffalo Soldiers National Museum will also be a destination site to view a Buffalo Soldier Motorcycle Club Exhibit.
