7th Regiment Arkansas Militia
Franklin County, Arkansas

The 7th Regiment Arkansas Militia was part of the old prewar State militia organization, and constituted the militia of Franklin County, Arkansas.  Like the rest of the Arkansas State Miltia, the 7th Regiment saw no action during the Civil War.  The regiment mustered at Ozark for its annual inspection and drill in February and March of 1862, after which it was deactivated, and its members enlisted in regular Confederate regiments.  Most of the members of the Franklin County Militia enlisted in Co. I,  34th Arkansas Infantry.  Later in the war, several of the militiamen enlisted in Union regiments.
