Plaque on the statue marking DeSoto's westward-most point near Caddo Gap, Montgomery County
circa 1930s - 1940s
Close-up view of the plaque on the statue marking DeSoto's westward-most point near Caddo Gap, Montgomery County. The text reads, "DeSoto 1541 A.D. Here DeSoto reached his most westward point in the United States. Here was the capitol of the warlike Tula tribe of Indians who fiercely fought DeSoto and his men. Relics found in this vicinity suggest the romance of past centuries about which history will ever be meager and incomplete." The plaque was dedicated or donated by the Arkansas History Commission.
