News about Devil's Backbone Battlefield in Arkansas

I've received news from a friend at the Civil War Round Table of Arkansas that the Civil War Preservation Trust has voted to purchase 10 acres of the Devil's Backbone Battlefield in Sebastian County, Arkansas.
This move will preserve part of the site of the important Battle of Devil's Backbone (sometimes called the Battle of Backbone Mountain) fought near the towns of Greenwood and Fort Smith on September 1, 1863.
If you would like to read more about this battlefield or see additional photographs, please go to and click the Battlefields and Forts link in the column at left, then just look under the Arkansas heading and you will find the link.
