Buffalo National River Civil War Heritage Trail
The Buffalo National River is a 95,000-acre national park that preserves unique natural and cultural features of the Arkansas Ozarks. During the Civil War the rugged terrain became a battleground between aggressive independent Confederate units and the Union forces holding northwest Arkansas. Skirmish sites, saltpeter caves and Civil War-era farms are interpreted. Exhibit at the Tyler Bend Visitor Center on US 65 at Silver Hill.
