Fearing a Union attack on Little Rock, Confederate Gen. Sterling Price ordered his men to fortify the high ground on the north side of the Arkansas River in the summer of 1863. A strong network of earthen works soon developed, including some in what is now Park Hill. Union Gen. Frederick Steele crossed the Arkansas east of the fortifications, however, leading Price to abandon them and the capital on Sept. 10, 1863, and retreat to southwest Arkansas. Union soldiers viewing the captured works deemed them well-built and formidable.
