  After more than 120 years, Buffalo soldier to be given symbolic burial in Florida

More than 120 years after his death, Pvt. James Johnson will receive a symbolic burial and be remembered for his military service Saturday in Bartow, Fla.

The Buffalo Soldiers Florida will hold a symbolic funeral and headstone dedication for Johnson at 11 a.m. Saturday at Evergreen Cemetery, located near State Road 60 and Baker Avenue.

Lakeland resident Richard Wilder, president of the Col. Charles Young Chapter of the Buffalo Soldiers Florida, said it’s an honor that’s long overdue.
