Here on June 5, 1865 Confederate General Jeff Thompson formally surrendered the army of Northern Arkansas to Union military authorities. More than five thousand officers and enlisted men who served under Thompson were paroled here, as were several hundred more Confederate soldiers from other commands.
At the time of surrender the Confederates were almost without food and weapons, and had no equipment except dugout canoes. General Jeff Thompson made his farewell address to his men from the deck of a steamboat.
