LITTLE ROCK—The Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission has approved an application for an Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Historical Marker in Union County, ACWSC Chairman Tom Dupree announced today.
The historical marker will be located at the Mount Holly Cemetery and will discuss the cemetery and Confederate Col. Asa Morgan, who is buried there. The South Arkansas Historical Foundation is sponsoring the marker.
Through the Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission Historical Marker Program, the ACWSC works with local partners to help tell the stories of how the Civil War affected communities around the state. The Commission hopes that there will be at least one marker in each of the state’s 75 counties by the end of the sesquicentennial commemoration in 2015.
