A Divided State: A Civil War Novel
by Joe G Poindexter
With the start of the Civil War, Willis and three of his boyhood friends agree; if Arkansas, a slave state, secedes as other Southern states have, and if it’s invaded by Union troops, they will defend the state, their homes and farms. While they don’t believe in slavery, they won’t stand by and see a Northern army destroy their beloved state. They eventually participate in the Battle of Pea Ridge.
