On April 10, Major General Fred Steele's Union forces, combined with Brigadier General John M. Thayer's division, marched south from the Cornelius Farm. They soon encountered a Confederate line of battle at Prairie D'Ane and attacked, driving it back about a mile before being checked.
Skirmishing continued throughout the afternoon of April 11, forcing Steele to divert line of march forces away from Shreveport toward Camden.
Major General Sterling Price's Confederates returned to Prairie D'Ane on April 13, falling upon Steele's rearguard under Thayer.
After a four-hour battle, Price disengaged, and Steele's column continued to Camden, occupying the city.
