LITTLE ROCK—The Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission has approved an application for an Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Historical Marker in Clark County, ACWSC Chairman Tom Dupree announced today.
The historical marker will be located at the junction of Military Road and Highway 7/67 at Arkadelphia and will commemorate military activity in Clark County and Confederate manufacturing efforts in Arkadelphia. The Clark County Historical Society 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 commemoration in 2015. To date, 67 markers in 43 counties have been approved.
