Book DescriptionArkansas, the Old South's last frontier, was forced, after the election of Lincoln, to face the issue of secession. Woods focuses upon the resulting social, economic, and geographic divisions that grew within the state before and during the secession crisis. He captures the political struggles of the state as it tore away from the nation, and as it threatened, in so doing, to tear itself apart.
