Being acquired by the United States as part of the Louisiana Purchase, Fort Smith is a fascinating and often quite important piece of American History. Having been established as a military base as the country began to expand westward, the city became an important victory for the Union in the Civil War, as both sides wanted control of the country’s military outposts. After the war, it became known as a town where law and order were strictly enforced, both through the use of the U.S. Marshal Service and judges bent on upholding the law. In recent pop culture history, the book and movie adaptations of True Grit have all been set here in the city and depict the use of U.S. Marshals in apprehending criminals and bringing them to justice.
