CAMDEN — A reenactment and several educational programs are planned in Camden to mark the 150th anniversary of a Civil War battle in Ouachita County.

A reenactment is planned for Saturday at the Poison Springs Battleground State Park, where the Battle of Poison Spring occurred 150 years ago this week.

The Ouachita County Historical Society said three Camden homes dating back to the Civil War will be open to the public Friday. Tents will be set up on the city's streets with costumed actors inside explaining daily life for women, families and soldiers during the war.

Performers dressed as Union troops will be camped inside the city, and a Confederate artillery will be nearby.
