"...Dress on the Colors" depicts the attack on Kettle Hill by the Tenth Cavalry "Buffalo Soldiers." Future President and officer in the assault, Theodore Roosevelt wrote about it this way - "Up Kettle Hill Sergeant George Berry, of the Tenth, bore not only his own regimental colors but those of the Third, the color sergeant of the Third having been shot down: he kept shouting, 'Dress on the colors, boys, dress on the colors!'" Another name of interest in the print is that of John J. Pershing - future Chief of Staff of the Army. He was a subaltern with the Tenth Cavalry and was near Berry during the attack.
