We Must Stand or Fall Alone ~ The Civil War in Arkansas


This exhibit explores what the Civil War looked and felt like in Arkansas, using women’s journals, slave narratives, letters from soldiers, uniforms and weapons to tell that story. No surprise, it wasn’t much like Hollywood’s glamorized 1939 version of the Civil War. It was a gritty, harsh reality for those living through a war that saw approximately 700,000 killed in combat and that largely defined what the United States would strive to be in the future—a free country for all its citizens.
