This book fills a long standing gap in state histories dealing with the period of the Civil War in the western frontier that was Arkansas. Based on newspaper articles, legal documents, letters, diaries, reminiscences, songs, and official military reports, Dougan’s account provides a full picture of the political situation just prior to the war, and set the stage for the state’s entry into the war despite the fate that only a third of the population supported secession.


“The quality of research is excellent.”
American Historical Review

“Dougan’s study of Confederate Arkansas is a fine volume, worth reading, and deserving of its receipt of the Mrs. Simon Baruch University Award for excellence in Confederate history.”
            —Civil War History

1972 Mrs. Simon Baruch University Award, sponsored by United Daughters of the Confederacy
