Armstrong Creek (Cass County)

General Entry

Armstrong Creek rises 5½ miles east of Douglassville in northeastern Cass County (at 33°12' N, 94°15' W) and runs northwest for two miles to its mouth on Wright Patman Lake (at 33°13' N, 94°16' W). The soils over which it flows are sandy and loamy, and the gently rolling to hilly area around the creek is heavily wooded, with pines and various hardwoods predominating.

The following, adapted from the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, is the preferred citation for this entry.
