Mosonmagyaróvár

and ''Moson'' by foreigners. The Hansági Museum can be found in Mosonmagyaróvár. http: hansagi.gymsmuzeum.hu Etymology The name Moson comes from the Slavic (Slavic languages) ''Musun'', which means "castle in the marsh". Magyaróvár literally means "ancient Hungarian castle" in Hungarian (Hungarian language), though the ''Magyar-'' prefix was only added to the name after confusion with a similarly named town in Austria called Deutsch

The names were simply combined when the two towns were administratively unified.

One source stated that the Brooks regiment suffered one man killed and three wounded; another report was that five men were killed and "quite a number" wounded." Ancient Fort '''THE BENEDICT MANUSCRIPT''' Written by R.W. Benedict Circa 1880 ''Discovery of Antiquarian Relics at Natural Steps, Pulaski County, Arkansas on South Side River'' "About the year 1820 my father and family settled at Natural Steps, making a purchase of an improvement on public lands, of a Quapaw Indian named Heinman. I, at that time was about 8 years old and the events, that I am now to relate, are my own recollections and observations. About the year 1821, General Nix (General John Nicks) of the United States Army, was proceeding up the Arkansas river to supersede General (William) Bradford in the Indian Country of the far west, and to establish the military post of Fort Gibson. He was traveling in 3 Keel Boats, loaded with troops and Supplies (there being no Steamboats in those days). In passing our home, General Nix being an old acquaintance of my father John C. Benedict, stopped off to see his old friend. Previous to his arrival we had discovered, that upon the Spot where we were living, there had evidently been a Fort of great antiquity, and unknown to history. We invited the attention of General Nix to our discovery and after making a thorough examination, he pronounced the ruins to be unquestionably those of a very ancient raised Fort. Every evidence existed corroborative of the fact, that away back in the past centuries, there had been an important Fortification at this place, and that there had been a terrible fight engaged in, either at its capitulation and destruction, or at some time previous. The four walls of the fortification were still plainly visible, and their outlines well defined – and General Nix stepped their straight lines in measuring them. That this Fort must have been of great antiquity was evidenced by the fact that at this time immense trees were growing in the area inside the walls.
