Battle of Perryville

Was the battle of Perryville and the battle of Richmond the same battle? I have a book on the First Arkansas Infantry that talks about the battle of Perryville...but the first Arkansas flag shows the battle of Richmond, KY on it.

Can anyone tell me more details about the First Arkansas and their participation in this or both battles?
