The Battle of Jenkins' Ferry was fought just across the river from the park in the Saline River swamps. The last significant engagement of the Arkansas phase of the Red River Campaign, the battle was fought on April 29-30, 1864

(February 2008) Enlarge  This is the Saline River at Jenkins' Ferry State Park in Arkansas. The river was rising following heavy rains when this photograph was taken and the flood plain swamps were overflowing, much as they were during the Battle of Jenkins' Ferry. This photo was taken at the point where the Union pontoon bridge was thrown across the river. The Union retreat took place across the river from the opposite bank
