The district had a base with the same name during the war in Vietnam. Dầu Tiếng Base Camp played a prominent role in the fighting around northern III Corps. On 23 February 1969, the NVA launched a large scale attack on the base to coincide with their Tet 1969 campaign. They managed to penetrate the perimeter and push their way into the base's motor pool and heavy fighting continued for several hours along the southern, southwestern and southeastern portions of the perimeter until the NVA withdrew.
