An interesting consecutive run of Arkansas session laws from the state's general assembly, covering the ninth through twelfth sessions, and running up to just before the Civil War. The first volume was printed in Arkadelphia, the remainder in Little Rock. The issues covered in these sessions are typical of a southern American state in the mid-1800s, especially with regard to slavery and "free negroes."
