click to enlarge GET ENGAGED: Looking for a new patch to sew on your rebel uniform? It won't be easy, but here's how you can get the patch above, or a commemorative coin if you'd rather, offered by the Department of Arkansas Heritage's Civil War Sesquicentennial Passport Program: You take your official Sesquicentennial Passport and visit 23 Civil War-related "stamping sites," from Pea Ridge National Military Park in the Northwest (near Garfield, Benton County) to Lakeport Plantation in the Southeast (Lake Village, Chicot County). There are 35 other "associated sites," including battlefields and cemeteries; no word on what bounty might be yours if you go to all 58 sites touched by the war. Passports are available at all Arkansas Welcome Centers, the stamping sites or by writing the Sesquicentennial Commission at 1500 Tower Building, 323 Center St., Little Rock 72201.
