Arkansas In The Civil War

There are three new Civil War markers in DeValls Bluff that tell the story of the Delta community during the War Between the States. Because of the large files, the three markers will take up three posts on the Arkansas Toothpick. Click on the marker picture for a full-size version.

The markers will be dedicated on October 5, 2013 in downtown DeValls Bluff at 2PM. Driving directions and a schedule will be posted closer to the dedication date on

Any living historians or Civil War re-enactors are urged to attend. If you have a musket, please bring five caps (one for weapons inspection, three for vollies, and one for post-volley inspection) and three rounds of ammunition. Both Confederate and Federal are invited. There will be a Federal 10 LB Parrot Rifle artillery piece at the event.
