Mutiny of Rage: The 1917 Camp Logan Riots and Buffalo Soldiers in Houston
In 1917, 118 black soldiers were charged with murder, mutiny, aggravated assault and disobeying orders after a race riot in Houston, Texas. Nineteen of the soldiers were eventually hanged. The riot also referred to as the Camp Logan Mutiny, is believed to be the only racial insurrection in the United States in which the white death toll exceeded the number of blacks who died. The largest court-martial in U.S. history followed the unrest.
