University of Arkansas at Fort Smith professor Billy Higgins speaks Friday at a rededication event for the state’s War of 1812 Memorial Fountain, during which the Arkansas chapter of the U.S. Daughters of the War of 1812 honored Peter Caulder, the first black soldier to have his name added to the fountain.

Arkansas kicked Peter Caulder -- along with other free black people -- out of the state in the mid-1800s. Now it's honoring him.
