Thanks for the pics, the Arkansas troops are portraying the Hempstead Rifles, 3rd Ark
Thanks Mr. McBride,
My sons and I are in your picture of Arkansas troops. We were portraying the Hempstead Rifles (Washington Arkansas) from photos of the unit, the original tintype of the company is on display over at the museum on the park - the boys with the big knives.
The Hempstead Rifles became Co. E, 3rd Arkansas State Troops (90 day service).
Thanks again for the photos!
