The Battle of Hurricane Creek
After the fall of Little Rock to Union forces in September 1863, the area immediately south of the Arkansas River became a No Man's Land. On the morning of October 23, 1864, a Federal detachment of the 7th Army Corps, returning to Little Rock after raiding the Confederate arsenal at Princeton, was engaged by Logan's 11th Arkansas Cavalry, CSA, at a point one mile southeast of this spot. The ensuing battle was fought at the Hurricane Creek Crossing of the old Camden Road and resulted in 28 men killed, 11 wounded and one captured.
