Let's see, we have Civil War, or War between the States, or the War of Northern Aggression.  Take your pick, I can even supply you with a list of soldiers and units. And some very famous battles also. 

Of course there are the wars after that one which also need their warriors added. 

Like Native American Studies? The three main nations in AR were Caddo, Quapaw, and Osage. Cherokee came later. There are mounds that date back 6,000 years or more. Some are kept secret to prevent looting. 

Notables... Arkansas is full of famous people. Some only on a local level, some on the national level. Johnny Cash and Hazel Walker, just to name a couple. Oh yeah, and a president. And two Miss USA's.

Of course I think there should be a Politicians of AR project. 

And CENSUS at WikiTree. I've been transcribing several counties, not just Arkansas, but also 1790 Guilford, NC https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:1790_Census_Guilford_County_North_Carolina     

1790 Abbeville, SC https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:1790_Census_Abbeville_County_South_Carolina  

remade 1800 Barnstable, Mass https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:1800_US_Census_Barnstable_Massachusetts

Plus Union County, AR for 1850, 1840, 1830 and Van Buren County is about half was done. BUT!! I am reworking the 1850 accommodate slave owners.
