The history of Forrest City, Arkansas, stretches back far into prehistory when mastodons roamed the slope of Crowley's Ridge. Workmen discovered mastodon bones within city limits in 1949. After that time, Native Americans flourished in the area before European settlement began in earnest. St. Francis County was established and recognized as part of the new Arkansas Territory in 1827.

Civil War Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest established the town in the 1860s. He camped in the area during the Civil War while the railroad line between Memphis and Little Rock was completed and even established the first commissary store. The town later became the county seat.

The town's Civil War significance continued during the Little Rock Campaign of 1863 at Davidson's Approach near Forrest City, where U.S. General John Wynn Davidson's troops moved through during the Little Rock Campaign of 1863.
