1st Arkansas Cavalry Regiment (State Troops)

Organized in June, 1861, and assigned to Pearce's Brigade, Arkansas State Troops near Fayetteville in August of that year. Fought at the battle of Oak Hills (Wilson's Creek) on August 10, 1861 and returned to northwest Arkansas later that month. In a spat of political squabbling, Pearce disbanded all his units of State Troops on September 19 rather than enlist them for Confederate service. Most members of the 1st Arkansas Cavalry re-enlisted for Confederate service in the 1st Arkansas (Carroll's - Thomson's) Cavalry Regiment early in 1862.

Officers: Col. DeRosey Carroll
