The foot of the Ouachita Mountains lie along the western portion of the city. Pulaski County is located in the centre of Arkansas, and is named after Casimir Pulaski, a Polish military man who saved the life of George Washington during the American Revolutionary War (1775-1783).

6. What two states lie directly east of Arkansas?

From Quiz U.S.A: All about Arkansas

Answer: Tennessee and Mississippi

Arkansas does border Louisiana, but Louisiana lies south. Arkansas also borders Texas, with Texas lying south-west. Arkansas also shares a border with Oklahoma, but Oklahoma lies west. Arkansas also has a border of Missouri, but Missouri lies north. A lawsuit named "Arkansas v. Tennessee" was a case of 1970 involving the United States Supreme Court regarding a border dispute between the two states. Where the Mississippi River is today, is not where it was when it formed Arkansas and Tennessee's boundary. The river has moved over the years, causing debate about the border. The US Supreme Court found that the western border of Tennessee cannot be moved simply because of natural geographical adjustments of the river.
