Pocahontas, Arkansas in Southern VictoryEdit

In 1881, during the Second Mexican War, the town of Pocahontas fell to the US Army. Due to this being the only victory the US Army had, it was loudly trumped by the War Department. Sam Clemens and Clay Herndon both ridiculed this victory upon hearing it. The town didn't remain in US hands for long, and it soon fell to the Confederates not long afterwards.

After the war, the US Navy named a supply ship after the town.
