The Die Is Cast examines why a small frontier state would choose to sever its ties with the United States and join the southern Confederacy. Under the direction of editor Mark K. Christ, five historians examine the political and social forces that led to secession and transformed farmers, clerks, and shopkeepers into soldiers. One essay explores the 1861 Arkansas Secession Convention and the delegates' internal divisions on whether to leave the Union. Another examines the role southern women played in moving the state toward secession although thousands of Arkansans chose not to follow the Confederate banner in 1861. Collectively, these essays provide an overview of the diverse passions that finally brought the people of Arkansas to war. Book jacket.
