This battle covers the history of Helena, Arkansas. With special emphasis on Helena's role in the Civil War. There is a cool diorama and historical artifacts. There are two rooms with and upstairs in one. This museum takes less than 1 hour to tour, a good stop if you're in Helena.

Interesting local history museum with an informed docent to fill you in on the background of the exhibits, well worth a visit if passing through this area. The town itself is fairly decrepit as are many within the Mississippi Delta.
