The title “Fort Whiskey”, is in reference to Ft. Smith, Arkansas. In 1865 the city of Ft. Smith did not have a lot going for it. It had a few local businesses and it was a small but growing community. There was one business though that was out doing all the others – the saloon business. Ft. Smith had about forty saloons at that time. Also, during that time, it was a federal crime to sell liquor in the Indian Territory. Many broke this law and were hunted down and arrested. A few notable gunfights broke out over this. Because of all of this kind of activity, people facetiously began to refer to Ft. Smith as Fort Whiskey.
