THE TUTT, KING, AND EVERETT WAR
This war, or feud, concerned at least three families and covered a good portion of the early days of our county's history. It has been call The King-Everett War, the Tutt-Everett War, and the Marion Co. War. Accounts of this event in Marion Co. history have been told by more than one individual, and all accounts agree that the battles were fought in Marion and Searcy Cos. from 1844 to 1850. Not all agree, however, that it was a political feud. Everything was going well in both counties until the legislature got kind of sticky about boundaries and legal procedures and such in 1838. Both the Tutt and Everett families wound up in Marion Co. with both seeking control.

During World War II, the Japanese army could not break the "secret code" of the U.S. Military. This "secret code" was simply a group of Navajo volunteers speaking their Native American language on their field radios!
