The past fifteen months have been a tumultuous time, and Arkansans—as they’ve been doing for fifteen years now, since our launch in May 2006—have looked to the CALS Encyclopedia of Arkansas to provide information and context as they navigated political news, social justice protests, and an unprecedented global pandemic.
The following entries were the fifteen entries viewed the most from March 2020 to May 2021. Click on the title of each for the link to the full EOA entry.
Elaine Massacre of 1919
Negro Boys Industrial School Fire of 1959

Titan II Missile Explosion (1980)
Civil War through Reconstruction, 1861 through 1874

We don’t yet know what information our readers will seek in the next fifteen months, and beyond, but we’ll be ready for them!
