Biographical/Historical Note

The Arkansas Militia was established when Arkansas became a territory in 1819. Territorial Governor George Izard strengthened the militia during the Indian removal, since Arkansas was a corridor to Indian Territory. The militia was disbanded in southern states after the Civil War by an act of Congress. In 1868, Governor Powell Clayton organized a new state militia to combat the rise of the Ku Klux Klan.
