“The capture of Arkansas Post, Ark. General Stephen G. Burbridge, accompanied by his staff, planting the Stars and Stripes on Fort Hindman, January 11th, 1863. No sooner was the fort surrendered than General Burbridge and his staff sprang across the ditch, mounted the parapet, and planted the flag of the republic upon its bloody battlements, thus making a fitting finale to one of the most glorious achievements of the war. The number of prisoners surrendered was 5,000, the Federal forces in action being 27,000. An immense quantity of quartemaster’s, commissary and ordinance stores were also obtained, among which were 20 guns, 8,000 stands of small arms, and 100 army wagons, with herds of horses and mules."— Frank Leslie, 1896
