LITTLE ROCK—The Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission has approved an application for an Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Historical Marker in Fulton County, ACWSC Chairman Tom Dupree announced today.
The approved marker is sponsored by the City of Mammoth Spring and will commemorate the 1862 battle at Salem and other military activities during the war in Fulton County. It will be located at Mammoth Spring State Park.
Through the Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial 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. Counties that currently do not have Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Historical Markers are Bradley, Calhoun, Craighead, Crawford, Franklin, Hot Spring, Howard, Johnson, Lafayette, Lawrence, Montgomery, Newton, Polk, Randolph, Sevier and Sharp.
