In 1673, Jacques Marquette and Louis Jolliet visited the Arkansas region. After La Salle claimed it for France in 1682, colonization began. The first settlement was established in 1686 by Henri de Tonti. Although France ceded the area to Spain after the French and Indian War, Spain returned it to France in 1800. In 1803, the United States acquired the area from France as part of the Louisiana Purchase. The Arkansas Territory was established in 1819, and statehood was granted in 1836.
