Battle of Prairie De Ann
April 10 - 13, 1864

The culmination of the Camden, Ar. and the Red River, La. campaigns was to capture Texas. Two Union armies were to join at Shreveport and move West. Gen. Steele was defeated in Ar. and Gen. Banks in La. The wounded from the Battle of Prairie De Ann were brought into Washington, Ar. where homes, churches, and business were filled. Seventy-four Confederate dead are buried here, known only to God.

Lest we forget.
Gen. Sterling Price Commanding
