The last formal duel in Arkansas occurred between two Confederate generals during the Civil War. On September 6, 1863, with Union troops only a few miles away, Generals John S. Marmaduke and Lucius M. Walker decided that honor required them to fight each other rather than the Yankees. The generals used six-shooter revolvers, and Walker died after the second shot.
