Little Sugar Creek, Arkansas

February 17, 1862

Historical Overview
As Brig. Gen. Samuel R. Curtis's Union army advanced in January 1862, Sterling Price abandoned Springfield, determined to join forces with Benjamin McCulloch in Arkansas. Marching south along the Telegraph Road, the Missouri State Guard conducted a fighting retreat for four days, as Curtis followed closely. When Price reached the Arkansas state line, Price was reinforced by Col. Louis Hébert's brigade and took over as the Confederate rear guard.
Hébert, in an attempt to slow the Union pursuit, deployed his forces near Dunagin's homestead. Curtis's Union forces, strung out from the long march, had difficulty deploying for battle. Price sent two regiments to Hébert to assist, but after a lively skirmish and more Union troops arriving at the battlefield, the outnumbered Confederates withdrew.
The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.

Vittoria USA 4-1. Piu' che una battaglia una scaramuccia. La cavalleria nordista grazie a due cariche fortunate sbaraglia la sinistra sudista anche se in difesa dietro gli steccati. I confederati si raccolgono nel centro intorno al gen. Hebert ma l'arrivo della fanteria nordista pone la parola fine a questa breve battaglia.
