Biographical Note

Samuel H. Emerson served in the 3rd Arkansas Infantry of the Confederate army during the Civil War. He was a member of the first company from Hot Spring County, Arkansas, to respond to a request from the Secretary of War of the Confederate States. The company, called the Hot Spring County Hornets, organized from May to June 1861. On June 24, 1861, the unit departed from the county. They arrived at Lynchburg, Virginia, on July 5, 1861, where they met up with other companies to organize into the 3rd Arkansas Infantry Regiment. The company from Hot Spring County was designated Company F. The 3rd Arkansas was a part of General Robert E. Lee's surrender at Appomattox, Virginia. Samuel H. Emerson was paroled on April 9, 1865, at the Appomattox courthouse.
