Harlem Hellfighters

Over the years at AVC we have collected numerous stories of black patriots, many of whose stories have historically been overlooked. In honor of Black History Month, we have gathered various clips paying tribute to our nation’s African-American heroes, from the American Revolution through today. One of our featured stories highlights the men of the 369th Infantry Regiment, formerly known as the 15th New York National Guard Regiment, who saw some of the greatest action throughout the First and Second World Wars. Their perseverance and acts of valor earned them the nicknames “Men of Bronze” from their French allies and “Harlem Hellfighters” from their German opponents.
