An informal column about issues affecting the West Point Community
Commentary by Capt. Patrick Murphy
SJA "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stand at times of challenge and controversy." Benjamin Franklin As we head into Super Bowl weekend, we can celebrate two great teams facing off in the Super Bowl for the Vince Lombardi Trophy. As you can read in Jim Fox’s column, I am predicting a big Rams win, 30-17, over the New England Patriots, as long as the Rams continue to follow the ‘Marshall Plan’ (as in Marshall Faulk). But we can also start celebrating another great event which begins today, Black History Month. Whether black or white, African-American or Irish-American, we should all take the time in February to celebrate this part of our American heritage. A trip to Harlem The experience of a lifetime Where else in the Army can you take a day trip to historic Harlem? In what looks to become a West Point tradition, Maj. Steve Redmon, a fellow Judge Advocate in the Department of Law, is running another Harlem Trip Feb. 16. Simply put, this trip is almost as good as the Super Bowl itself. Last year, several buses went down on this exciting and insightful trip. This year’s trip looks to be even bigger and better. The Harlem trip will be departing West Point Feb. 16, at 8 a.m., from Buffalo Soldiers Field. After visiting institutions like the Schomberg Center of Research in Black Culture (a must-see visit in itself), the Apollo Theater (where some of us may have the opportunity to show off our talents), Grant’s Tomb and enjoying some fine soul food cuisine, the trip will return to USMA by 7 p.m., just in time for any Saturday night plans.

Although Flipper is best remembered as the first African American graduate of West Point, he later had an important career as an authority on the border between the United States and Mexico. Born into slavery in Thomasville, Georgia, Henry was the son of Festus and Isabella Flipper. His father, a slave and local shoemaker, and his mother, the slave of a Methodist minister, believed in the importance of formal education, and this was a value they passed on to their sons during the heady optimism of Reconstruction. While attending Atlanta University, Flipper attracted the attention of a local congressman, who appointed him to attend the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. The social atmosphere at West Point proved difficult and demanding for its handful of young black cadets, but Flipper persevered and graduated in ...

First black graduate of West Point and Indian Wars army officer, Henry Ossian Flipper, eldest son of Festus and Isabella Flipper, was born a slave on March 21, 1856, in Thomasville, Georgia. He was a mulatto and possessed some Cherokee ancestry. During Reconstruction Festus Flipper operated a business in Atlanta, Georgia. This enabled Henry to attend Atlanta University. In 1873 a white Republican congressman from Georgia appointed him to the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York. The white cadets at the military academy socially ostracized Flipper, but he persevered and became the first black graduate in 1877, and the Regular Army's first and only black commissioned officer. He was assigned to the Tenth Cavalry. The Ninth and Tenth Cavalry were regiments of black enlisted men with white officers.

Born a slave in Georgia , he took advantage of Reconstruction to attend Atlanta University, where, as a freshman, he was given a commission to West Point, where there were already four other African-Americans.

He was soon sent to Texas and later to Fort Sill in then Indian Territory , where he served as an engineer, supervising the drainage of malaria -infested ponds and the construction of roads and telegraph lines .
