Harvest of Death: The Battle of Jenkins' Ferry, Arkansas, is the first book in over fifty years focusing on this, the final battle of the 1864 Camden Expedition, the Arkansas portion of the failed Red River Expedition. 

Using previously unpublished historical maps and photographs, author Joe Walker draws you into the action those two bloody days in April of 1864. 13,000 men would wage war across the Saline River bottoms with over 1,500 killed and wounded. It was one of the bloodies moments in Arkansas history.
