(HISTORICAL) -- BATTLE OF PEA RIDGE, March 7-8, 1862 -- Facing the daunting Union fortifications at Little Sugar Creek, Confederate General Earl Van Dorn decided upon a daring and extremely risky plan. He would take his entire army and interpose it between the Union army and its line of communications. The Bentonville Detour sweeps to the west around the Union lines and to their rear at Cross Timber Hollow. An all-night forced march would have his men in position at the Hollow at dawn on the 7th. Unfortunately, fatigue and disorganization, combined with felled tree obstructions at both ends of the detour, scattered the army all along the road and when dawn came only the head of Price's column was in position. Nonetheless, Van Dorn was squarely in the enemy's rear.
