The People and Policies of A Frontier State in WartimeUnknown - 2010
This book fills a long standing gap in state histories dealing with the period of the Civil War in the western frontier that was Arkansas. Based on newspaper articles, legal documents, letters, diaries, reminiscences, songs, and official military reports, Dougan's account provides a full picture of the political situation just prior to the war, and set the stage for the state's entry into the war despite the fate that only a third of the population supported secession.
