This is a quaint little park, right in the highway, nice for a quick stop. It deals with a bit of local Civil War history, with a couple log cabin style buildings. Interesting enough, it is also on the Trail of Tears. Nice stop or place to picnic.

I stopped by to take a few pics. They have really taken some time to try and have more than a field of grass. A few buildings have been built now as well. Doesnt take a lot of time to visit. Nice stop on the way to something else...

There is a canon, a couple of structures, a small walking trail and a couple of signs telling you what happened there. Not really a whole lot to take pictures of but now we can say we've been there. Parking is small and there is no admission charge.

This park on the south side of Jacksonville, AR preserves the battlefield of Reed's Bridge. It was part of the Little Rock Campaign in September 1863 when Union General Frederick Steele forced Confederate General Sterling Price to abandon the Arkansas State Capital and retreat to the southwestern part of Arkansas. There were 11 Confederate States and it is my understanding... More

Once again the TripAdvisor address was wrong!!! I ended up googling it and finding it 2.5miles from TripAdvisor address. As far as the place itself, it was cool. There was an old house and in the back a second building which was the kitchen. There were also a few other buildings and some walking trails. It was a nice little... More

I was disappointed a bit when I went because you couldn't enter any of the historic buildings like other places. It is a cute set up though and it was nice to look around. It would be a great place to take pictures. There is a nice big barn and a pretty field in the back if you walk along... More

Saw several in state cars and one out of state vehicle. Area is clean and appears to be crime free . I read a bit more about this battle and visit the site each year . This location has a canoe / kayak launch nearby and offers visitors a slightly different view of battle grounds. Be careful saw several water... More

We watched a full reenactment of the battle and were impressed with the way the participants displayed their realism during the show. Everything was great. We had a lot of fun. We had conversations with many of the soldiers. We enjoyed the field artillery and the cavalry!!

This was a nice self-guided stop. There is a little homestead that you can explore. It had rained the day before so the grounds were kind of muddy, but other than that it was a great place to learn about local history. We spent about thirty minutes here.

EAch time I visit it seems that more is being added . I bet that in nicer weather that people displaying old carfts and ways of life would be a nice draw. Nice clean park area.
