The Bean Cave in Marion County, Arkansas



        Recently I wrote a series on a skirmish that occurred during the Civil War on the White River entitled  Crude Invitations to the Civil War Part 1, Part 2 & Part 3. In this series, the major point of contention was a prime piece of real estate called the Bean Cave. I have found a newspaper  article from 1861that substantiates this location and its significance for the Confederacy, before it became a site for the Union Army to raid. Additionally, other locations along the White River are also mentioned.

Enjoy your Ozarks' History.
