Coming Tomorrow - The Battle of Fayetteville, Arkansas

Beginning tomorrow I will start a new series on the Battle of Fayetteville, Arkansas.
This engagement took place on April 18, 1863 when Confederate forces under Gen. W. L . Cabell swept down from East Mountain and attacked the Union forces of Col. M. LaRue Harrison in the heart of downtown Fayetteville.
The structure shown here, the Tebbetts or "Headquarters" House, faced some of the heaviest fighting of the battle and bears scars from the engagement to this day.
Check back starting tomorrow to learn more about the Battle of Fayetteville.
