As Gen. Frederick Steele's Union army marched toward Little Rock in the summer of 1863, Saline County officials feared their records would be seized or destroyed. They met Aug. 31, 1863, and saying the Union "function is to cut up, mutilate, and destroy the Articles of States and the Records of County," they ordered the county clerk to "remove from the Courthouse, to some private place ... the said records." Most of the records vanished during the war, but the county seal was found in modern-day Grant County and returned to Saline County in 2013.
