Formed on February 4, 1869, Grant County was named in honor of U.S. President-elect Ulysses S. Grant.

The Battle of Jenkins' Ferry (April 30, 1864), also known as the Engagement at Jenkins' Ferry, was fought at Jenkins' Ferry, southwest of Little Rock, during the American Civil War. It was the climactic battle of Steele's Camden Expedition, a part of the Red River Campaign. As a result of the battle, Federal forces were able to complete a retreat from a precarious position at Camden to their defenses at Little Rock.
