In this work, wartime history of Arkansans is brought to life in short stories. For almost two hundred years, Arkansans have been part of America's struggle to maintain democracy and keep the peace at home and around the globe. ""Homefront Arkansas: Arkansans Face Wartime Past and Present"" shows how war has affected those at home as well as those who served as soldiers. The chapters include: a wounded Civil War soldier who stumbles onto a homestead after a battle at Poison Springs. Arkansas, forever changing the family there; in 1875, Arkansans took sides in the Brooks-Baxter War, involving two men each claiming to be the governor of Arkansas; Arkansas volunteers follow Teddy Roosevelt into the Spanish-American War, only to find troops crowded into a filthy camp as they wait to be shipped out; and, an African-American girl leaves her native state to escape persecution, only to find that a world war is threatening to envelop her new home in England. Woody's stories provide a factual and compelling backdrop for Arkansas' history as seen through its conflicts. Fascinated readers will follow the chronology of Arkansans who met the nation's call both at home and abroad.
