COUNTY AND LITTLE ROCK HISTORY
The Pulaski County seat is
at Little Rock, which
is also the State Capital and the largest city in Arkansas. The county
is named for Count Casimir Pulaski,
Revolutionary War hero. The Quapaw Indians lived in what is now the
Little Rock area before white explorers first arrived there. In 1820
the legislature of the Arkansas Territory chose Little Rock as the
territorial capital. About 50 persons lived in the town at that time.
The town began serving as the capital in 1821. Little Rock's location
on the Arkansas River and its role as capital led to the town's growth
as a trading center. After the Civil War began in 1861, confederate
troops occupied the Army post at Little Rock and used the city as a
supply center. Federal forces captured the city in 1863. After the war
ended in 1865, Little Rock prospered as a cotton and lumber market and
as Arkansas' chief center of trade. (Early
