The Old U.S. Arsenal in MacArthur Park at Ninth and Commerce Streets in Little Rock, completed in 1840, was surrendered to Arkansas Governor Henry M. Rector on February 8, 1861. From August of 1862, until Little Rock was taken by Union troops in September of 1863, the Arsenal was used to produce gunpowder and repair small arms for Confederate forces. It remained in Union hands until the end of the war. It now houses the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History.
