Born in Alabama Oct. 10, 1829, Dandridge McRae moved to Arkansas in 1849. A lawyer, he recruited Confederates in 1861 and led a battalion at Wilson's Creek and a regiment at Pea Ridge. Promoted to brigadier general Nov. 5, 1862, he was the only White Countian to achieve that rank. He also led troops at Prairie Grove, Helena, during the Little Rock Campaign, and at Fitzhugh's Woods. A violent foe of Arkansas's Reconstruction government, McRae was an active Mason and promoted education and Arkansas business after the war. He died April 23, 1899.
