The Battle of Covenant was a lengthy campaign fought in three stages in and around the site of Covenant at the confluence of the Arkansas and Mississippi Rivers during the American-Mexican War in the summer and early fall of 1841. The battle is sometimes referred to as the "high water mark of the Mexican Empire," as at Covenant, like at Baton Rouge the year before, the Mexican attempts to cross the Mississippi were sternly turned back by American forces. The fortifications at Covenant and the work done in shoring up the city against the Mexican advance led to its establishment on firm land in what was otherwise a bog and led to the city's growth over the next century.
