This town has a deep rich history with the American Civil War. I mean literally you see places which were there 150 years ago. You can stand in the same place Union and Confederate soldiers stood, fought, and lived.
|Entrance to Fort Curtis.|
Fort Curtis was amazing! I mean seriously you have a complete view of what was going at one point of the war. You can(nearly) see all the batteries which surround town to protect it. And make it a Union stronghold.
|This house is right between a couple of the batteries and the fort. It has some scars from the American Civil War.|
We even got a sneak peak at some of the things Helena is bring back.
|This is going to be a living wall for Battery C.|
They are still working on getting this little goody ready but I have to say this will be amazing when it is finished. This Battery (kinda like a mini fort) was the only one taken during the Battle of Helena on July 4, 1863. I am going to bring Glitter Bug back so she can see all her home state has to offer. Plus there is this great view from this Battery.
|This is just a part of the view.|
I can’t wait to share more with you about this great Delta town, Helena Arkansas. Oh when you do go make sure you give a shout out on twitter to this wonderful lady who took us around.

Until we next meet,
