A personal look
at Arkansas life
during Civil War

My knowledge of the Civil War is minimal, and I knew even less about how Arkansas was affected by the war. However, thanks to Samuel R. Phillips, I now know more.

He has shared a copy of the book that he edited. It is titled, "Loyalties Divided: The Journal of Young Mary Adelia Byers," Civil War Years 1862-1865 Batesville, Arkansas. Mary was his great-grandmother.

Dealing with disappointment

We recently went to the doctor for our second ultrasound and the long-anticipated answer to the question: "boy or girl?"

I think that since our son, Conley, was so convinced that the baby was going to be a girl, I already had that mindset, as well.
