Horace Pippin: creating lasting legacy

Horace Pippin

Horace Pippin was an African American WWI soldier from Pennsylvania. He served honorably in the 39th Infantry Regiment, a division of African American soldiers and was shot in the right shoulder. His battalion was all Black because white servicemen refused to serve with Black men. It would turn out to be only 1 of the 4 African American regiments that would see battle.
