WILBERFORCE, Ohio (AP) - The public is getting a chance to share input on the future of the new national monument in southwest Ohio that honors the first African-American colonel in the U.S. Army.
President Barack Obama designated Col. Charles Young's home in Wilberforce as a national park site earlier this year. The National Park Service says public comments will be accepted at a Monday evening meeting at Wilberforce University as officials plan how the monument will be managed in future years.
Officials have said they expect about 125,000 visitors annually at the Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers National Monument.
Young served with the all-black 9th and 10th Calvary regiments, often called Buffalo Soldiers. American Indians gave that name to black soldiers on the western frontier in the 19th century.
