The courthouse yard is the county's civic center of heroism, pride, and remembrance. The yard pictured here is in the square at Harrison, Boone County, Arkansas. It possesses monuments commemorating six wars, from the Civil War to Vietnam. It also contains an extraordinary monument to the county's emigrant sons and daughters of 1857 who, enroute to California, were slain in a bizarre and infamous massacre in southwest Utah Territory. The granite massacre monument, some six feet tall, contains a detailed map and is covered with writing, front and back.
