The Woods & Wanton Chapter, Inc. is the first registered chapter of the Buffalo Soldiers in the State of Florida. It was named after congressional medal of honor recipients, Sgt. Brent Woods and MSgt. George Wanton.
The soldiers fought in the Spanish American War, assisted with the expansion of the west, and contributed to the Indian War of the Great Plains. Native Americans were impressed with the courage and tenacity of these men and honored them with the name "Buffalo Soldiers".
