Jackson's Island Ford County Kansas

Jackson's Island on the Wet Route of the Santa Fe Trail. At this location in 1843 Captain Philip St. George Cook's force disarmed the Mercenaries of Col. Jacob Snively. The marker is located on the south side of US 400 near the Jackson Island location. In aerial photos of this location in 1938, Jackson Island shows up real good. Jackson Grove was located to the west of the island on the north side of the river.
