In August of 1863, the Reed's Bridge battlefield became part of the Little Rock Campaign. It is also considered the best preserved battlefield, thanks to the efforts of a local non-profit organization made up of Little Rock citizens. However, they need your assistance to continue the preservation of this historical battlefield.
Volunteers are asked to wear clothes they don't mind getting dirty. Work gloves are highly recommended, as the clean up can be hard on the hands. Since the cleanup includes the banks of the Bayou Meto, anyone with a small boat, canoe or kayak is asked to bring it along. Waterproof boots or hip waders are also recommended for wading into the Bayou during cleanup.
Any Little Rock citizen interested in volunteering for the Reed's Bridge battlefield cleanup this Saturday should contact Nic Clark at the MacArthur Museum by 4:30 on April 5th. Refreshments will be provided on-site for all volunteers. There will also be an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast available before the clean up commences for just $5. Help preserve our Little Rock history by volunteering your time to causes like this.
