New Blog - Arkansas In the Civil War

With the 150th anniversary of the Civil War fast approaching, interest in Civil War history is starting to increase, and thankfully, along with this increase in interest is a corresponding increase in available information.

One example is a new blog, Arkansas in the Civil War. Posted by writer and historian Dale Cox, the blog has already covered the Battle of Arkansas Post in great detail.

While not the scene of great naval battles, Arkansas did see both Union and Confederate vessels on her waters, including the Battle of Arkansas Post, as shown in the painting above.

As it shows, a number of Union vessels were used to support the 30,000 Union troops involved in the battle.

Arkansas in the Civil War looks to be another blog well worth following.
