Log Town Hill
The residents of Log Town were witness to the retreat of the Rebel army through Van Buren and onward through their settlement. High on Log Town Hill the community watched as masses of Southern soldiers crowded the hill trying desperately to reach the riverboats. The commander of this Union Army raid, General Blount, set up camp in a field on Log Town Hill.
