Why is Arkansas pronounced as it is?
The State of Arkansas was originally the Territory of Arkansaw, but when it was admitted to the union, the spelling was changed. Later there was a conflict between two Arkansas Senators. One wanted to be called the "Senator from Arkansas", the other "Senator from Arkansaw". The Arkansas Legislature formed a committee of historians to resolve this conflict. In 1881, a state law was passed. In what would become Arkansas Code, title 1, chapter 4, section 1-4-105, the pronunciation would be "Arkansaw"
