The Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission has approved a historical marker for Fulton County to commemorate military actions there, Chairman Tom Dupree announced.
The Civil War Sesquicentennial Historical Marker will be located at Mammoth Spring State Park in Mammoth Spring and recognize the 1862 battle at Salem and other military activities in Fulton County during the war.
The commission works with local partners to tell stories of how the 1861-65 Civil War affected communities in Arkansas. The city of Mammoth Spring is sponsoring the marker.
The marker is the 100th the commission has approved, spread among 59 counties. The commission's goal is to have a marker approved in all 75 counties by the end of this year.
Applications for historical markers and other information on sesquicentennial activities are available at the commission's website arkansascivilwar150.com.
