Brigadier General Albert G. Jenkins of Virginia, with 350 Confederate cavalrymen, crossed the Ohio River near this point on September 3, 1862 and advanced to Racine. After occupying the town for a few hours and after seizing a dozen horses, the troop re-crossed the river at Wolf's Bar. This was the first invasion of Ohio's soil by Confederate troops during the Civil War.
