PULASKI COUNTY AND LITTLE ROCK HISTORY

The Pulaski County seat is located 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 History of Little Rock)  (County History
