Game Wicket
Location Little Rock, AR, United States

From the Civil War journal of James B. Lockney, Wisconsin 28th Regiment.

"In Camp near Little Rock. Ark Wednesday Sept 30, 1863.

Today was rainy in the A.M. & drizzled some P.M. The boys had a game of Wicket the first time I ever saw it played. They used clubs of hurdles and a large ball about 6 in. in diameter. Some of the Officers took part & the game passed off quietly."

Note that the camp was probably in what is now the Little Rock city limits.
