The elegant steamboat Lizzie Simmons was built in 1859 and ran between Memphis and New Orleans until the Confederate Navy bought her in 1861 and converted her into a gunboat, the C.S.S. Pontchartrain. The vessel fought on the Mississippi River until ordered to serve on Arkansass rivers. Her crew fought at St. Charles and Arkansas Post, but the Pontchartrain remained at Little Rock, a threat to Union sailors. She was burned near here when Little Rock fell in 1863, though one of her cannons now sits in the front yard of the Old State House.
