History of Marker:
This camp was established in June 1861, by Brig. Gen. Nicholas Bart Pearce, a Benton County man, to train recruits from Western Arkansas and the Indian Nation. He was a West Point Graduate. Many Arkansas units, Greer's Texas Regiment, Herbert's 3d Louisiana, went from this camp to Camp Stephens and on to join the battle of Wilson's Creek. The training ground covered about two square miles. This marker is set near the officer's quarters on the ridge and a little rocked-up well used by them.
