Battle of Poison Spring, Arkansas

I hope you are having a good Labor Day.
Beginning tomorrow I'll start a series of posts on the Battle of Poison Spring, Arkansas. An important part of the Red River Campaign, this engagement was a controversial and bloody Confederate victory.
A portion of the battlefield is now preserved as the Poison Spring State Park near Camden and much of the rest is protected in a natural state.
Be sure to check in tomorrow for part one on this new series!
