Speaking of discussion of Arkansas in The Civil War, why does Arkansas not get the recognition for its contribution by both sides? The 3rd Arkansas was a part of the Famous Hood’s Texas Brigade, And it’s record speaks for itself, yet they are widely overlooked. The Arkansas Troops in the Army of the Tennessee played a very important part in the successes of the Western Army. In the Trans-Mississippi the recognition is almost nill. The Arkansas units that served the Union, are even worse. Heaven forbid, outside Arkansas, the USCT service is seriously neglected. I started researching the 1st Iowa Infantry (AD) later became the 60th Infantry Regiment USCT. I consider myself as being very familiar with Lawrence County Civil War history and I did not know until just a few years ago that in August and September 1865, a company of the 60th was posted at Powhatan and a soldier died there. I began to research the Regiment and was surprised at how good their record was in spite of high casualty rate and how they were treated. I found out that the Regiment in addition to disease, lost soldiers to accidents, drowning, suicide and at Searcy, a murder. No record of burial sites. No record of where the actual Detachment Post was located. In my research of medical treatment and casualty processing I was informed that most likely they died in a detachment hospital tent being cared for by fellow soldiers acting as orderlies. Some may have had the luxury of seeing an assistant surgeon. Upon death, they would have been, most likely buried on the grounds of the post and the grave marked with a temporary marker. In the case of Private Archie Cramer, Company H, most likely would have been buried at Powhatan and his grave is no longer known. The same is true of the casualties at Jacksonport. Anyone have any ideas on how to locate where the Posts were at, and determine where the graves might be? I believe that at least a marker documenting their service and probably burial and a list of the casualties should be placed. I hope there are other that agree with me this is would be an important and useful project to preserve history. Private Cramer was a former slave recruited in Missouri. I am sure he had family or others who would have wondered what happened to him. If Private Cramer still has family in Missouri I think they would welcome and appreciate having some type of permanent marker. I would greatly appreciate any assistance as I have run through my limited knowledge and resources.
