Long Description:
"Berryville in the Civil War
Both U.S. and C.S. troops rendezvoused in Berryville during the Civil War. By 1865, most of the town was in ruins. U.S. units were stationed here in 1863-64, including the 1st and 2nd Arkansas Cavalry, 6th and 8th Missouri State Militia, and Gaddys Home Guards. On April 16, 1864, Confederate guerrillas attacked a detachment of the 2nd Arkansas foraging on the Osage branch of Kings River. Six Union soldiers and six black teamsters died during the fight. The Union casualties, and others who died at the post, are buried in the city cemetery.
