The Journal of Captain Henry Brockman
     Captain Henry Brockman served in Company K, 10th Missouri Volunteer Infantry, Confederate Army during the Civil War. In his journal, he describes in detail his daily activities, the many places he visited, and the things he saw during his time in the military. As Brockman "traveled through fine country," his tour of duty took him to major battles in Arkansas and Louisiana, including stops at Jacksonport, Pocahontas, Yellville, Des Arc, Helena, Little Rock, Benton, Arkadelphia, Warren, Camden, and Shreveport. For over 100 years, the Arkansas History Commission has preserved Brockman's writings. The captain's journal has been meticulously transcribed, and is now published and available in book format. ($15 plus $2 shipping)
