By the time of their arrival at Fort Robinson, there was an ofﬁcers’ club and mess where ofﬁcers and their wives could dine and socialize. The post commander hosted dances when dignitaries visited, and the ofﬁcers’ club held more informal card parties, dances, and other social gatherings. 16 Because of Young’s social exclusion from meals at the ofﬁcers’ club, he took his meals at his home, alone, served by one of his soldiers. Ofﬁcers often hired soldiers, nicknamed “strikers,” as servants for their households.
As an example, 1st Sgt. David Badie of B Troop was a solid veteran who neither coddled nor abused his soldiers, and Charles Young had served with him for more than a year by the time he marched into Fort Duchesne. 11 By 1890 there was a core of long-service, experienced frontier veterans in the Ninth Cavalry that gave the unit a solid cadre of competent soldiers and professional noncommissioned ofﬁcers. This and other factors helped the Ninth develop a high esprit de corps, which in turn helped the black troopers win the grudging respect of most of their white ofﬁcers.
William D. McAnaney, F Troop, was listed as serving on detached duty commanding B Troop from September 19 to 21. Why was McAnaney put in command of Young’s troop for a portion of the movement to Utah? The trip took a total of seven days, consisting of a march to Bordeaux, Wyoming, a rail trip to western Wyoming, and then the ﬁnal march to Fort Duchesne, Utah. ”43 The regiment likely tapped McAnaney to lead the column on the ﬁrst leg of the journey because he was more experienced. A march of 134 miles in three days over unfamiliar terrain would have been a challenge for Young had he been the only ofﬁcer in the column.
