Diary of a State: 1860 took over a decade to compile both primary source material (including text and art work) and the compiling of a chronology of the whole year leading up to secession in Arkansas. This artwork appeared in Europe early in 1860. This image appears on page 9 of Diary of a State:1860 in a piece that sums up the previous year of 1859.
This book uncovers the good, the bad, and the ugly. Why did Arkansas leave the Union? What was the political and economic environment from which hostilities erupted leaving Arkansas bereft of food, supplies, and citizens? This book covers everything from newspaper editorials to a list of militia units across the state.
