Arkansas Post, Part Four

This is a section of a Civil War diagram of Fort Hindman now housed in the collection of the National Park Service.

The sally port or gate of the fort is at the top of the image and the Arkansas River can be seen running along the bottom.
The cannon sketch shows damage inflicted on one of the fort's big guns during the Battle of Arkansas Post.

Our series on Arkansas Post National Memorial will continue. Until then, you can read more by visiting www.exploresouthernhistory.com/arkansaspost.
