Jenkins' Ferry State Park - Arkansas
Our new page on Jenkins' Ferry State Park in Arkansas is now online at www.exploresouthernhistory.com.
The Battle of Jenkins' Ferry was fought on April 29-30, 1864 during the Red River Campaign. A major encounter, the Civil War battle ended the Arkansas phase of the campaign.
We will be adding additional pages about the Red River Campaign over the coming weeks, but Jenkins' Ferry is the first to come online.
The park is located 13 miles southwest of Sheridan, Arkansas, and is within one hour's drive of a number of major Arkansas communities, including Little Rock, Hot Springs and Pine Bluff. It commemorates the 1864 battle and is also a popular recreation area.
