Following their defeat at the July 4, 1863, Battle of Helena, Confederate Gen. Sterling Price's infantry division fell back to Des Arc and Searcy. Price assumed command of the Confederate army in Arkansas on July 23 and Gen. James Fagan took over his division. Fearing that Union commanders were planning a campaign to capture Little Rock, Price chose to bring his troops closer to the capital and ordered Fagan to bring his men - McRae's and Fagan's Arkansas brigades and Parsons' Missourians - to camps near springs north of Bayou Meto in modern Jacksonville.
