Look for details regarding Secession of Arkansas at www.encyclopediaofarkansas.net
I do not have a name for this event but there was almost a first battle of the Civil War at Little Rock in early February when a group of about 1,000 armed men showed up in the attempt to evice a United States Arsenal at that locale.
They thought they were doing the bidding of their state governor at the time. Arkansas elected some people to represent the state at secessionist talks later that month and I believe seceded from the Union in March of that year.
Please check the website for clarity on this.Source(s): www.encyclopediaofarkansas.net
