Actor Colonel Fordyce:
“It developed that a number of army officers stationed at Fort Logan H. Roots had made a most adverse report about the location of the camp near Little Rock, and this report had been sent to General Wood, then in command of the Department of the Southeast, at Charleston. When this report was received, General Wood, instead of concurring with the recommendation and sending the report on to Washington, came himself to examine conditions, and, after a most thorough and exhaustive investigation into the plan, wired the adjutant general his full approval. After that the contractor was immediately appointed and I was given every facility with which to rush the work. So I feel that but for General Wood and his approval Little Rock would have lost the camp."
Actor Orville Traylor:
“I arrived in Camp Pike all okay and found Mr. Whead in camp awaiting our arrival. This sure is some interesting place and covers thousands of acres of ground. There will be every kind of line of work that pertains to the making of an Army. We had just one blanket to put over us and did not have a pillow and no mattress, and believe me I sure like to froze, but the Department Officer will report today and then we will fix us up some nice place to stay; also get some nice beds as well as mattresses and all of the covers we want. I will give you a plain idea of how they feed in this Company. We had the following things to eat this morning: 2 eggs, hominy, biscuits, syrup, bacon, bananas and cream, and cup of coffee with plenty of cream and sugar.”
Actor James Harris Atkinson:
“To a fellow sitting around as I have been it seems that most of the time is spent eating, or waiting to eat, and in washing and scrubbing. Our cots have to be taken outside everyday and our floor scrubbed every day. Things are kept clean. There is always someone higher up to ‘raise Cain’ if things aren’t clean. Cleanliness seems to be the hobby. Everything is screened. In our outfit at Camp Pike we were issued two good pair of shoes, two shirts (woolen), two pair trousers, 3 pair socks, belt, hat, two suits underwear, comb, brush, two woolen blankets, 2 towels, toothbrush, soap, 1 pair leggings, mess kit, knife, fork, spoon, cup, bed and sack.”
Actor Adjunct General Edmund Burgevin:
“Sir: I am directed by his Excellency the governor to acknowledge the receipt for Special Orders, Number 106, from the War Department at Washington. That order is based on the presumption of the State of Arkansas being willing to furnish the quota of troops required of her for the Federal Army – a presumption entirely improbable, and, I can assure you, utterly impossible. Further, I have to inform you that I had the honor on Tuesday night, April 23rd, 1861, at Fort Smith, to order the seizure of the person of Major R. C. Gatlin, Fifth Infantry, as prisoner of war, and who is now at large on parole of honor not to serve against the State of Arkansas or the Southern Confederacy. I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant. Edmund Burgevin, Adjutant General of Arkansas.”
Actor Arkansas Guardsman:
“Bob Murray is bad off. I think he has typhoid fever. He is real bad. We are camped now on the very spot where the Arkansas Regiments were camped in the war of 1860, so you see we are on historic ground. I am only tolerable well. We had a grand review the other day; about 30,000 men in line. It was a grand sight. I was along with the colors. Well, Sweetheart, we have had no pay day yet but think we will get paid tomorrow. I hope so, for I am broke!”
Actor Soldier (reading a poem to loved ones): "A darling little wife / Has made my dreams come true / She blesses all my life / Her name is only you / You are my partner sweet / You share in all I do / And make my joy complete / By simply being you."
