Edge of the Storm
Buffalo Soldier Sergeant Thomas Shaw
by D.J. NEARY
Patrolling the Northern Plains while serving at Fort Robinson, Nebraska during the quiet, but severe, winter of 1889/90, the veteran trooper listens intently to the sounds emanating from the storm-swept tableland.
SERGEANT THOMAS SHAW of K Troop, 9th Cavalry, was a seasoned campaigner whose career began during the Civil War when he escaped from slavery to fight for the Union. During his subsequent enlistment and long service in the Ninth Cavalry, Sergeant Shaw was awarded the coveted Medal of Honor for his bold actions in 1881 against the Apache warrior, Nana.
AFTER A LONG CAREER of hard frontier service, Sgt. Thomas Shaw retired in 1894 while stationed at Fort Myer, Virginia. He died one year later and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
