What is your name?

The Encyclopedia of Arkansas History & Culture.

What is your quest?

To provide an educational resource on the state of Arkansas to the citizens of Arkansas—nay, to the nation and the world. We are a work in progress, with over 1,600 entries online at present covering all aspects of state history and culture, from the Far West Seminary, reputedly the most important school never to have held classes, to Miss Laura’s Bordello, the fried dill pickle, governors and other elected officials, counties and towns, and most everything you can think of. We also have over 2,000 pieces of media online, covering pictures, maps, documents, and streaming video and audio. This is all free to the public. Just go to our website. If you’re looking for something specific, you can either enter a search term in the box in the upper right-hand corner or use our browsing tabs to browse by alphabetical order, time period, category, race, gender, etc. Or you can check out the “See What’s New” tab to view the latest additions to our site. We are adding material every week, getting ever closer to our goal of 3,000 entries by the year 2010.

What is the official state song of Arkansas?

Which one? The two official state songs, the official state anthem, or the official state historic song?

Huh? I… I don’t know that—AUUUGGGGHHHH!!!!!
