Description

As threats of a Union invasion into Arkansas loomed, Brigadier General McCulloch and Colonel Thomas C. Hindman published proclamations urging Arkansas men to join the Confederate Army. McCulloch also reports the burning of Osceola, Missouri, by Kansas jayhawkers, and correspondents report the latest news from Kentucky.

Biographical/Historical Note

During The Civil War, newspapers were some of the only sources of information on what was happening in the war. Newspapers like the True Democrat would briefly describe the events and latest news from battlefields around the country. It would also tell which regiments were camped nearby the place of publication, publish proclamations, decrees, and ways the citizens could contribute to the war effort.
