Founded in 1828, Fayetteville was named after General Lafayette, the famous French general who aided the colonists during the American Revolution. Incorporation as a city came in 1836, and Fayetteville continued to grow slowly yet steadily up through the outbreak of the American Civil War in 1861.
Fayetteville was the site of several battles during the Civil War, including one between Union and Confederate forces fought at the present-day intersection of College Avenue and Dickson Street. After the war, the city continued to grow and after the construction of the University of Arkansas became a popular academic city in Arkansas. Today, the University of Arkansas is the largest university in the state and is a prominent force in the SEC.
