The Battle of Van Buren, Arkansas
Beginning tomorrow I will be starting a new series on the Battle of Van Buren, Arkansas.
If you aren't familiar with this encounter, it was quite a fascinating event. Thousands of Union troops swept over the Boston Mountains in the dead of winter and surprised the Confederates at Van Buren in one of the most dramatic incidents of the Civil War in Arkansas.
In addition, Van Buren is one of the most charming and historic communities in Arkansas. I think you will enjoy the postings, so I hope you will check back with us starting tomorrow.
