Well, you can't just use slavery as the entire cause of the War, because Kentucky had a greater percentage of slave population than Arkansas.  Arkansas seceded, while Kentucky stayed in the Union.  But maybe the eastern half of Arkansas being part of the Delta could have played a part.

Kentucky--23%

Arkansas--20%
