The Battle of Dripping Springs, Arkansas
Over the next few days we are exploring the Battle of Dripping Springs, Arkansas on our sister blog, Arkansas in the Civil War.
This battle was fought on December 28, 1862, between Confederate and Union troops in the edge of the Ozarks north of the city of Van Buren, Arkansas.
It was an important preliminary action to the Battle of Van Buren, fought later that day.
