  • The Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission has approved an application for an Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Historical Marker in Cleburne County, ACWSC Chairman Tom Dupree announced recently.
    The historical marker will be located at the Cleburne County Courthouse in Heber Springs and will commemorate Cleburne County in the Civil War. Cleburne County and the Cleburne County United Daughters of the Confederacy Chapter 1757 are sponsoring the marker.
    Through the Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission Historical Marker Program, the ACWSC works with local partners to help tell the stories of how the Civil War affected communities around the state. The Commission hopes that there will be at least one marker in each of the state’s 75 counties by the end of the Sesquicentennial commemoration in 2015.
    The application for the Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission Historical Marker Program can be downloaded at http://www.arkansascivilwarl50.com/historical-markers/markers.aspx.
