Over at my Facebook page, we are talking about Yosemite Ranger Shelton Johnson. He portrays a Buffalo Soldier. They were the African-American Army unit that were the first caretakers of the park after 1890. They were based in San Francisco’s Presidio but rode horses to the park to keep it from being devoured by sheep and “bad people” in the days before the NPS was formed. This video is a great snippet of Johnson and his work. Enjoy.
He does a one-man show every Sunday evening at 7 pm in the Valley Theater.
