NEWPORT, AR (KAIT/Arkansas State Parks) -

Cannons, like the one by our Confederate memorial, are an iconic part of the Civil War battlefield. Join a park interpreter to learn more about these explosive weapons of war, and go through the same drill soldiers would have learned in order to fire one. This is a free event that will begin at our Visitor Center @ 5:30 pm on Saturday May 26, 2018.  You can call (870) 523-2143 for more information.
