Jenkins' Ferry Battlefield

Jenkins' Ferry Battlefield

Region: Timberlands

County: Grant

The Jenkins' Ferry Battlefield is located along Highway 46 and interpreted at a state park on the banks of the Saline River, which Steele's Federals were desperately trying to cross at the end of the failed Camden expedition of the Red River Campaign of 1864. The battlefield, now largely in timber production, is still prone to heavy spring flooding, as it was when the two armies met there on April 30, 1864.
Open daily from dawn to dusk.
Located 13 miles south of Sheridan on AR Hwy 46.
