The Jacksonville Museum of Military History opened its doors in April of 2005 with the mission to foster an appreciation and to educate the public on the contributions and sacrifices made on the battlefield as well as the home front by men and women in defense of our country.  The museum explores both local and regional military history.  Exhibits span from the Civil War era to the current day conflicts of Enduring Freedom and Iraq Freedom.

The Civil War Exhibit focuses on the Trans-Mississippi Theater, which includes Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas.  In particular the Civil War exhibit focuses on the Battle of Reed’s Bridge that took place in Jacksonville on modern-day Highway 161.  The Reed’s Bridge Battle was part of the larger campaign for Little Rock, in which the Union Army took control of Little Rock from the Confederate army.
