Arkansas history

Agriculture, slavery and Cotton

We have explored the Arkansas territory and how it evolved into Statehood! Robert Crittenden is a key figure and according to Jeannie Whayne, “Arkansas was not an empty frontier that might serve as a dumping ground for eastern Indians, it becomes a way station for Indians on voluntary or forced westward treks.” However, I think if you asked most people what Arkansas was known for it would be Agriculture, Slavery and Cotton. Although the end of the Civil War saw the end of slavery, agriculture and cotton continue to be a “staple” even up to the present time.
