Some Veterans Settled In Arkansas

From Makers of Arkansas history:

Some of these immigrants had been soldiers in the War of 1812.  The United States had given each soldier in that War a certificate that entitled him to one hundred and sixty acres of the public lands.  Many of these tracts were located in Arkansas.

Bounty Land Warrant recipients in Arkansas.

A War of 1812 hero, James Miller, was the first governor of the Arkansas Territory.
