150 Years Ago Today: Arkansas in the Civil War, is an online exhibit that allowed the Arkansas History Commission to showcase some of its extensive holdings relating to the Civil War in Arkansas. The AHC staff selected and digitized an image, announcement, article, diary entry, letter or other document from each day of the Civil War from early tensions in January of 1861 through the end of April in 1865, and shared them online. The war is again over, but the documents and images of the war are still available to us, to illustrate the lives and times of those who lived through it. 150 Years Ago Today: Arkansas in the Civil War can still be searched and browsed through here on our site, and its companion publication, Documenting Arkansas: The Civil War 1861-1865 is available for purchase. Order forms can be found here.
