Not Many Know The Story Of The War That Took Place Under An Arkansas Waterfall

Deep in Buffalo River country resides a stunning scenic area known as Hideout Hollow. You may have taken the Hideout Hollow Trail during your last excursion to the Upper Buffalo District. The hollow was officially named after the Buffalo area received national park status in 1972. And it’s named after a particularly interesting event that happened way back in 1918.

Media coverage in the early 1900s wasn’t quite what it is today, so unfortunately we do not have photos of the skirmish. As we recount this interesting piece of history, please enjoy scrolling through photos of the same waterfall and area that witnessed this bizarre battle.
