he Polk County Civil War Historical Marker, located by the KCS Depot, was vandalized this past weekend. The Marker, entitled “Polk County in the Civil War - Polk County men served on both sides during the Civil War” was unveiled during the spring of 2016. The marker is designated to honor those who were a part of the history of Polk County. Shirley Manning, Marker Committee Member stated during the unveiling ceremony, “We hope this Marker will serve to educate visitors on our local history. As dreadful as it was, the Civil War was a part of an important time in our history that should be remembered and honored.” According to Patrick Costello, an incident report has been filed with the Mena Police Department and repairs to the marker will soon be completed.
