Graves Registration

South East Arkansas Civil War Graves Registration ProjectThe South East Arkansas Civil War Graves Registration Project sponsored by the Patrick R. Cleburne Camp #1433 in Pine Bluff, Arkansas,  will assist the Arkansas Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans in their search for all known Confederate graves across the state of Arkansas by providing all known documented Confederate graves throughout South East Arkansas. 

The South East Arkansas Civil War Graves Registration Project will include all known Civil War grave sites, including both Confederate and  Union.  If you know of any Civil War graves in your area, please help us catalogue these hallowed plots by taking a picture of the headstone, provide any content or history on the soldier (if known), GPS coordinates, name of cemetery (if stone is in a cemetery) or directions to get to marker.  If you have any diaries, pictures, letters, or any additional information on any of these soldiers in our directory, please send it to us so we can all remember these brave men.

This project will span the course of many years.  We need everyone’s help in locating and documenting these graves…we simply have to! Again, we do not want JUST Confederate grave info, but Union as well.  The Confederacy fought the Union as bitter enemies, but both sides now play an active role in preserving each.  Decendants of Union veterans have done a great deal in helping preserve Confederate history and heritage.

South East Arkansas Civil War Graves Registry ProjectThis project was launched on a very symbolic day: April 15, 2008.  This date marks the merging of cultures – on the 144 anniversary of the death of Abraham Lincoln.  It was this date that Dr. Davis, Chancellor of the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, was officially recgonized with an Arkansas Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans high award for his efforts in helping Edgar Colvin and the Patrick R. Cleburne Camp #1433 of the Sons of Confederate Veterans preserve a section of a slave cemetery and Confederate graves. It was this date that the largest graves registration of its kind was launched in the effort of preserving our honored soldiers on both sides: gray and blue!

Because of the valiant support of dedicated individuals across the globe, the money has been raised for the purchase of Confederate Memorial Park in Helena, Arkansas.

We have taken a rare opportunity for the Sons of Confederate Veterans to own a core piece of battlefield and made it a reality! Located in Helena, Arkansas directly across from Fort Curtis and to the side of a Civil War era home (Moore-Hornor Home), both properties of which are maintained by the State of Arkansas (Delta Cultural Center) is approximately an acre of core battlefield that backs up to the site where General Price's troops made an attack on Fort Curtis on July 4, 1863.

On March 15, 2013 the General Executive Committee of the Sons of Confederate Veterans met in Biloxi, MS. At this meeting it was decided that the property will be donated to the SCV- This is a much-needed heritage victory in the Delta!

Your support is greatly needed!

The Arkansas Toothpick is the largest repository of Arkansas Civil War history and heritage. Observing the 150th Anniversary of the War Between the States is a task that the Toothpick does not take lightly, as we have posted original and exclusive articles on events in Arkansas on a weekly and chronological basis since 2010 (150 years after 1860). The purpose of the "150 Years Ago..." articles, written and researched by Ron Kelley and Don Roth, is to give a true reflection of the political, martial, and other aspects of Arkansas history leading up to and through the American Civil War.

The Arkansas Toothpick began over 25 years ago as a monthly hand-typed newsletter of the Spns of Confederate Veterans' Patrick R. Cleburne Camp #1433 in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. As the technology became available, the Toothpick was made available for the first time on the World Wide Web. Since, it's online presence has been overwhelming in the number of visitors searching our archives for a multitude of various topics.

Boasting of over ONE MILLION visitors, the Arkansas Toothpick has serves as a Civil War hub for historians and the general public. Our FACEBOOK page has nearly 1,000 FB Friends and counting, complete with live updates of
