Long Description:

The marker reads:


The companies of soldiers that came out
of Van Buren were formed at this historic
landmark. It is also the site where some
infantry and Calvary units camped and
drilled. There were nine different
companies that were formed in Crawford
County. Relatives of the men who fought
in the war have handed down most of the
records containing the names of the
soldiers. Some of the first companies
formed were the Crawford Artillery,
Crawford Guards, Captain Carroll's Calvary
Company and Captain Parker's Calvary. The
Frontier Guards from Van Buren took a
steamboat to unite with the soldiers in
the taking of Fort Smith.

The Civil War Comes Home.
