This building once made up a complex known as the Little Rock Arsenal. It is the only remaining building and is the birthplace of General Douglas MacArthur. The building was constructed before the Civil War and in the days leading up to the war was the center of a crisis. The governor wished the arsenal surrendered to the new Confederate government and after several days of near bloodshed, the arsenal was surrendered before Arkansas actually became a part of the Confederacy. In later times it became the Museum of Natural History and now is the Museum of Arkansas Military History. You can view several exhibits that highlight the part Arkansans have played in America's wars up to the present war on Terror. If you are patriotic and have an interest in military history here's the place to go.
