Arkansas in "Hi, Colonic"Edit

Three hunters from Arkansas, Willie, Al, and Little Joe, were abducted from their duck blind by two alien explorers in search of intelligent life. After pulling down Willie's pants, the alien probed him, and discovered no intelligent life. The process was repeated on Al, with the same result. However, the alien did find intelligent life in Little Joe.

After making contact, the aliens returned the three men to the duck blind with their pants around their ankles. Willie vaguely announced "we are not alone." Al agreed with him. Little Joe announced that Willie and Al were alone, but that he was not

Arkansas in Southern Victory Edit

Arkansas seceded from the United States in 1861, becoming a state of the Confederacy. In 1881, during the Second Mexican War, the city of Pocahontas fell to the US Army.

The northeastern sliver along the Mississippi River was annexed to the US state of Missouri after the Great War.

In 1942, during the Second Great War, a small column of U.S. forces invaded Arkansas from Missouri. The primary purpose was not to capture territory, but rather to tie up Confederate forces so they could not reinforce their Pittsburgh Army when General Irving Morrell launched his major flank attacks and encircled the city.

Infamous CS Navy submersible commander Roger Kimball was born in Arkansas, as was Burton Mitchel, 12th President of the CSA.

Arkansas in Supervolcano Edit

Arkansas was just outside the limits of ashfall from the Yellowstone Supervolcano eruption so FEMA established Camp Constitution as a refugee camp there.[2] The following summer was unusually cool with the temperature at around seventy rather than in the nineties and humid.[3]

Arkansas in Worldwar Edit

Arkansas developed into a center of resistance to the Race during the invasion by their Conquest Fleet in 1942. The United States Army fired rockets designed by Robert Goddard into Lizard-held U.S.-territory from inside the state. The national capital was relocated to Little Rock, Arkansas after Washington, DC was destroyed by the Lizards' explosive-metal bomb.
