Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Marker Program

The Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Historical Marker Program is just one way in which the Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission is fulfilling its mission to support a statewide observance of the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War that is educational, comprehensive and inclusive; that tells the story of the Civil War in Arkansas without making judgments about the actions and motivations of the people who took part in the war; and that stresses the relevance to Arkansans today by promoting local observances and acknowledging the impact the Civil War had on modern Arkansas. The Commission encourages local groups and organizations to sponsor markers that will help to tell the story of the Civil War in Arkansas and how it affected every area of the state. The Commission hopes to see at least one marker in each of Arkansas's 75 counties.
