The Taylor House or Hollywood Plantation (now a UAM Heritage Property) was built in the 1840s as a second residence for Dr. John M. Taylor and his wife. Dr. Taylor received his medical certificate in 1841. A number of medicine bottles were recovered from the 1880s ell kitchen, yet it has been noted that Dr. Taylor never practiced medicine. In this presentation Dr. Barnes will consider whether archeological research can provide evidence of Dr. Taylor’s medical practice or insight into health and healing in southeast Arkansas more generally.

Wealthy planters, like Chicot County’s Elisha Worthington, benefited from the work of the slaves they owned. Worthington, the largest slaveholder in Arkansas, owned 543 slaves and four plantations, including the Sunnyside Plantation. Photo courtesy of Annie Paden.
In the antebellum period Chicot County’s economy was dominated by slavery and cotton. The labor of slaves, who cleared vast forests and cultivated cotton, helped make Chicot County one of the wealthiest places in the Unites States. Slave life in the peculiar institution was complex; while not free, slaves developed their own culture, married, worshiped and, at times, sought the freedoms they were denied.  Kelly Jones, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Arkansas, will explore the world of slaves and slavery in Chicot County through court records, the census, newspapers and WPA narratives.

Bowie Knives on display at Historic Arkansas Museum
Bill Worthen, director of the Historic Arkansas Museum and Life member of the Antique Bowie Knife Association, will discuss the Bowie Knife’s connection to Chicot County. Rezin and John Bowie, brothers of the famous James Bowie, came to Chicot County in the late 1820s. Evolving from simpler hunting knives, the decorative bowie knife popularized by their brother James, became a favorite weapon of gentlemen and outlaws in the antebellum South. While James’s original knife was lost at the Alamo in 1836, several of Rezin Bowie‘s knives survive in both public and private collections.

Portrait of John Drennen (1801-1855)
 
John Drennen, a merchant and politician who co-founded Van Buren (Crawford County) in 1836, was also a prominent planter in Chicot County. Tom Wing, Director of the Drennen-Scott Historical Site, will discuss Drennen’s unfinished legacy in Chicot County. Drennen and his estate owned the Deerfield Plantation, later renamed Drennen Dale. In some historical accounts, part of Drennen Dale was donated to Chicot County to form a new county seat at Lake Village. The Drennen-Scott House in Van Buren was continually occupied by descendants of John Drennen from 1836 until it became part of the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith in 2004. The restored house is an integral part of UAFS’s Historical Interpretation Program.

Edward A. Fulton and Reconstruction in Drew County

Dr. Blake Wintory, Lakeport Plantation

Cleveland Gazette, December 3, 1887

Edward Allen Fulton, a former slave in Missouri and abolitionist in Chicago, served as Drew County’s only African American legislator during Reconstruction. Little has been written about this African American Reconstruction leader, politician and newspaper editor. In 1866 he arrived in Chicot County to farm, later relocating to Little Rock. He returned to southeast Arkansas and Drew County in 1870 as a census taker and was elected the Arkansas House later that year. His career in Republican politics during Reconstruction proved to be controversial–he survived an assassination attempt (possibly by a Republican rival), later ran unsuccessfully for Secretary of State, and was an out-spoken proponent of Civil Rights.
