The United States and several European powers vied for control of the lower Mississippi Valley. Arkansas Post was the key to that control.

In 1541 Hernando de Soto explored the territory which is now Arkansas. Sieur de La Salle further penetrated the area in 1682 and claimed the land for France. Henri de Tonti, one of La Salle's lieutenants, established the Post of Arkansas in 1686.
