Map of Arkansas counties in 1828.

The State of Arkansas was originally a part of the Louisiana Territory acquired from France in 1803. It later was part of Missouri Territory, and in 1813 most of what became the state formed Arkansas County, with Arkansas Post as the county seat. In 1819 the county became the Territory of Arkansas, with a capitol at Arkansas Post. In 1820 the territorial capitol moved to Little Rock.

Arkansas was admitted to the Union on June 15, 1836. It was the twenty-fifth state to join the Union. The state shares borders with Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas.
