Union soldiers occupied Batesville twice during the Civil War. Gen. Samuel Curtis's Army of the Southwest camped near this site in May 1862 while threatening Little Rock. Union troops were impressed with the town's culture and appearance, saying that "a more lovely place cannot be found anywhere." Confederate forces then occupied the area, using the same campsite, until Col. R. R. Livingston's Union troops used Batesville as a base from which to pacify the region in spring 1864. Confederate troops returned to recruit troops for a Missouri invasion.
