Arkansas State Information

Arkansas State is the located in the southern region of the United States. Its name is an Algonquin name of the Quapaw Indians. Its diverse geography ranges from the mountainous regions of the Ozarks and the Ouachita Mountains, which make up the U.S. Interior Highlands, to the eastern lowlands along the Mississippi River. The capital and most populous city is Little Rock, located in the central portion of the state. The name Arkansas derives from the same root as the name for the State of Kansas. The Mississippi River forms most of Arkansas's eastern border, except in Clay and Greene counties where the St. Francis River forms the western boundary of the Missouri Bootheel, and in dozens of places where the channel of the Mississippi has meandered from where it had last been legally specified. Arkansas is a land of mountains and valleys, thick forests and fertile plains. The so-called Lowlands are better known by names of their two regions, the Delta and the Grand Prairie. The Delta region is bisected by an unusual geological formation known as Crowley's Ridge. A narrow band of rolling hills, Crowley's Ridge rises from 250 to 500 feet (150 m) above the surrounding alluvial plain and underlies many of the major towns of eastern Arkansas.

Arkansas State History

Arkansas is one of several U.S. states formed from the territory purchased from Napoleon Bonaparte in the Louisiana Purchase. The Territory of Arkansas was organized on July 4, 1819. On June 15, 1836, the State of Arkansas was admitted to the Union as the 25th state and the 13th slave state. The Arkansas state developed a cotton culture in the east in lands of the Mississippi Delta. Arkansas became the 25th state on June 15, 1836, with Little Rock as its capital. At that time, many people began debating over slavery. The Arkansas River Development Program was completed in 1970. It allowed navigation across Arkansas from the Mississippi River into Oklahoma. Three historic towns in the Arkansas state parks system preserve the fabric of life on the American frontier, in the developing new state, and at a busy river port.
