Six Confederate regiments raised in Benton that had prominent Benton men as officers and leaders were the Eleventh Arkansas Infantry; Company E, First Arkansas Infantry; Company C, Third Arkansas Cavalry; Company D, Hawthorne’s Arkansas Infantry; Company B, Crawford’s Cavalry; and Company B, Twenty-Fifth Arkansas Infantry. Because Benton was so close to the fighting in Little Rock, it was not occupied during Reconstruction. Fagan was made a militia general and commanded Joseph Brooks’s forces in Little Rock, while the aforementioned Colonel Crawford found himself on the other side as brigadier general of militia for Elisha Baxter’s forces.
Thirteen properties, including a mound site and a bridge, are on the National Register of Historic Places.
Though the aluminum industry was located in nearby Bauxite, Benton served as an employee, a service sector, and a medical and entertainment base for Reynolds Metals and Alcoa Inc.
In the 1930s and 1940s, black workers in the bauxite mines lived in Bauxite at the Mexico Camp.
The Republican Mining Company was sold to Alcoa, which wanted to mine the camp area.
