One of the most fascinating aspects of Arkansas Delta history is the role that Helena and the Arkansas Delta  region played during America's Civil War. The "Civil War in the Delta" exhibit focuses on this period. From the Union occupation of Helena, to Helena's Confederate Generals, to the life of civilians, to the Battle of Helena, the exhibit provides an overview and timeline. Located on the upper floor of the Depot, the exhibit is fully accessible by elevator. These three rooms are a great start to explore more of the region's Civil War heritage.

To view more of Helena's Civil War sites, including Freedom Park where slaves were encamped as Union contraband freedom seekers-- refer to Civil War Helena for draft itineraries, map & directions, and general information.
