The 11th Arkansas Infantry organized at Benton in July 1861 and Saline County men served in 6 of its 10 companies. The 11th was captured in the Island No. 10 campaign in April 1862 and spent 5 months in Union prisons, later serving in Louisiana and Mississippi, where it consolidated with the 17th Arkansas Infantry and served as a mounted unit; they surrendered at Citronelle, Ala., in 1865. Some men of the 11th returned to Arkansas and served in Maj. James Poe's 11th Arkansas Cavalry. Veterans held one of state's first Confederate reunions in 1889.
