The Scout from Pine Bluff to DeValls Bluff ended. This scout was typical of many such operations carried out by the Union army during the duration of the war. Facing minor organized resistance, the Federal troopers easily defeated the small guerrilla bands opposing them. Skirmishes such as this were typical in the last days of the Civil War in Arkansas. With little organized and effective resistance in areas north of the Arkansas River, Union scouting parties like this one continued to disrupt Confederate operations.
