On August 25, 1863 U.S. and Confederate Cavalry clashed near here. The initial battle involving approximately 7,000 men occurred east of the town. After a brief artillery duel, Col. Geiger's US troopers forced the retreat of Gen. Marmaduke's CS force. Marmaduke formed new battlelines 6 miles to the west. The Union advance was repulsed, but the Confederates were forced to retreat. In less than 3 weeks the Union advance on Little Rock ended in success.
