There are two purposes for Comments in the Encyclopedia of Arkansas History & Culture. Comments can either add information to aid in the understanding of the entry or add information that provides an alternate interpretation of the historical record.

Information included in this section is not fact checked by the Encyclopedia staff. The author of the Comment is entirely responsible for its content.

I'm afraid this information is inaccurate. The world's shortest St. Patrick's Day Parade is held in Maryville, Mo., as noted in the Guinness Book of World Records.
