The 58th Regiment Arkansas Militia was part of the old prewar Arkansas State Militia organization, and constituted the militia unit for the area of southern Franklin County which is now in Logan County. Like the other State militia units, the 58th Regiment saw no action during the Civil War. It mustered for annual inspection and drill during the period February 22 to March 21, 1862, probably at Roseville. Shortly after the 1862 muster, a large number of the men enlisted in regular Confederate regiments, most in the 35th Arkansas Infantry. Later in the war, many of the men enlisted in Union regiments.
