The Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission has approved two new historical markers in Benton and Phillips counties.
The two markers announced Wednesday will be placed in Rogers and Helena-West Helena. The first will be placed at Hobbs State Park and will commemorate Peter Van Winkle's Mill, which was destroyed in the war.
The commission also approved a historical marker to commemorate the Lick Creek Skirmish in east Arkansas. That marker will be placed within Delta Heritage Trail State Park in Helena-West Helena.
The commission aims to place at least one historical marker in all 75 counties before the end of the sesquicentennial commemoration in 2015.
