Arkansas native, Carol Ann Carson, has written for OnlyInYourState for three years now. She resides in Western Arkansas' Mountain Frontier but calls NWA home as well. The graduate of University of Arkansas - Fort Smith, Carol Ann earned her B.A. in English and will soon be pursing her M.A. in Library Science. She loves exploring the trails around the Buffalo National River and has yet to find a waterfall that wasn't her favorite.
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.
