“PRAIRIE GROVE (KFSM) — A Civil War site marker has been vandalized for a second time, according to the Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission Facebook page. The sign is located at Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park.”

“Anyone with knowledge of the incident is asked to call the state park at (479) 846-2990, or the Prairie Grove Police Department at (479) 846-3270.”

The Arkansas Civil War Sesquincentennial Commission says this is the only one of 120 markers in Arkansas to be vandalized. Authorities suspect the same person or persons who destroyed the marker in a similar manner in 2014. The Commission replaced it then, but a Commission spokesperson said the group likely can’t afford the $2,340 cost to replace the cast aluminum sign again.
