During the interview, Mr. Wing announced that his next project had him working with Mark Christ of the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program on a book titled “The Earth Reeled and the Trees Trembled - Civil War Arkansas, 1863-1866.” Mr. Wing has a chapter in the book titled “The Sink of Iniquity and Corruption”: The Civil War in Fort Smith and Indian Territory.
Severally people followed up and asked if I could get some more information and I contacted Mr. Christ and got just that!
The book will be published in the November/December time frame by The Old State House Museum and is a compilation of papers presented at seminars at the Museum in 2003 and 2004. It will be available for purchase at the Museum’s bookstore.
