Reed's Bridge Battlefield is considered to be the most well-preserved Civil War site in Arkansas. This location hosts a marker commemorating the site where Confederate soldiers held off Federal troops advancing toward Little Rock in August of 1863. The battle took place on the south side of Jacksonville at Reed's Bridge. Led by Brig. Gen. John S. Marmaduke, the soldiers held fast, forcing Union troops to find a new route to Little Rock. A cabin on the site depicts what life was like during the Civil War. Click here to learn about the Reed's Battle re-enactment perfomed in odd-numbered years at this location.
