This camp was established in June, 1861, by Brig. Gen. Nicholas Bart Pierce, a Benton County man, to train recruits from Western Arkansas and the Indian Nation. He was a West Point graduate.



Many Arkansas units, Greer's Texas regiment, Herbert's 3d Louisiana, went from this camp to Camp Stephens and on to join in the battle of Wilson's Creek.



This training ground covered about two square miles. The marker is set near the officers' quarters on the ridge and a large rocked-up well used by them.
