Until recently, the footprints of history fell softly on Jacksonville, Arkansas. Situated 12 miles northeast of Little Rock and the Arkansas River, the Jacksonville area's first white settlers came to the Arkansas Territory in the early 1800s. Most traveled by the rough Southwest Trail from Missouri or the Military Road from Memphis, which also saw many Native Americans passing on their Trail of Tears. In 1836, Arkansas was admitted to the Union as a slave state. Registered as a town June 29, 1870, the coming of the railroad brought more people to Jacksonville. However, little changed here from 1870 to 1930, except women's hemlines, the arrival of automobiles, the telephone, and electricity. The rural community of about two hundred people built homes, raised cotton, and established churches and schools. Businesses prospered, and family names grew. Still, Jacksonville's main street remained unpaved. Improvements and growth began when a Civilian Conservation Corp camp was established during the Depression. Later, the Jacksonville Ordinance Plant employed thousands during WW II, and in 1955 the Little Rock Air Force Base was built, eventually swelling the population to almost 30,000 today.

"Recognized throughout the state as Arkansas's fastest-growing city, Jacksonville evolved from a settlement surrounding the railroad depot, eventually incorporating as a town in 1941. The population soared when the exceedingly large ordnance plant was built during World War II. The plant's footprint included much of present-day Jacksonville and employed upwards of 20,000 people. The migration northward from larger cities to this bustling suburban town has created an astounding contemporary history. With the advent of the nuclear age in 1955, Jacksonville took its place as a member of the Strategic Air Command family with its neighbor, the Little Rock Air Force Base. This book presents the town's history from the 1960s forward and showcases local accomplishments from the last 50 years."--Back cover.

(Book). Back in the good old days, all of America was infatuated with the singing cowboys of movies and radio. This huge interest led to the production of "cowboy guitars."

This fun, fact-filled book is an outstanding roundup of these wonderful instruments, starting with the Gene Autry model of 1932, through guitars made to capitalize on the popularity of the Lone Ranger and Roy Rogers, up through present-day makers.

Why do people who call themselves Christians not act like it? How do I find meaning for my life? How does God feel about homosexuals? What's so great about church? Does God really love me or even know I exist? Where have all the good men gone? Who is Jesus Christ and why is He important? If you've ever wondered about or asked about any of the above, then this book is for you. Reflections of the Soul serves two purposes. First, it takes a look at some of the hard questions of the Christian faith and attacks them head on. Second, it challenges those of the faith to live up to the name of Christ. It is time that those who call themselves Christians to either start living up to their name or change it. The Bible says that judgment starts at the House of God. Christians are commissioned to be changers of the world not reflections of it.
