With the Civil War Sesquicentennial activities behind us, we now look forward to developing Ft. Lookout as a museum and interpretive center for the events that occurred in Ouachita County in the spring of 1864. Ft. Lookout and Ft. Southerland, also known as Redoubts A and B, were important position points for defense along the river during the war. The success of our Sesquicentennial events gives us confidence that we can attract people from all over the United States to our community where "History Lives!"
Copies of The Quarterly can be purchased by calling or visiting the society office. The Quarterly has been in continual publication since the fall of 1969 and is published four times a year. It is available free to society members, but copies can be purchased without a membership. Historical researchers and genealogists looking for unique articles about local places, events, or people will discover a rich source of background information on a wide variety of topics. The Quarterly Contents Guide can be searched by topic and is formatted in chronological order beginning with the first 1969 issue through the fall 2013 issue. The Quarterly Contents Guide is available here.
