The purpose of the Arkansas Civil War Reading List is to provide the beginning reader with a short guide to good introductory books on the war as it affected our state. It lists a number of books, several of them with multiple volumes, as well as an 11 hour video documentary. The list is divided into various topic areas, each listing between three and eight books, which do not require a lot of prior knowledge about the war and which provide a good introduction for further reading on the subject.
