Jenkins' Ferry Battlefield State Park


category : State Parks
Directions: 13 miles south of Sheridan on the banks of the Saline River

General Steele's Federal troops were desperately trying to cross the river in flooded, foggy conditions when the Confederates began their attack. 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. It was the last major Arkansas battle in the Camden Expedition of the Red River Campaign. Picnic area.
