Confederate Roll of Honor - the Roll of Honor was established to recognize bravery during the Civil War. The south had a shortage of metal, so awards were not easily made. To compensate the Confederate Congress passed an ordinance allowing each company to submit the name of a brave man, recognized by the company, after a battle. These names were read before the regiment at the next dress parade and sent to the Confederate Congress for recognition. This Roll of Honor is under construction, but I wanted to post it as I worked on it, just in case one of your ancestors were honored.

The Memorial Honor Roll included here are names of Civil War participants contributed by family researchers. Please limit them to Arkansas residents (before, during, or after the war) or members of Arkansas units.
