Confederate Memorial Park in Helena, Arkansas is taking shape. What was once a kudzu-covered jungle in downtown Helena is now a place to reflect upon the sacrifices the brave Confederate soldiers gave with their lives and their families’ lives and livelihood fighting the enemy. Below are pictures of progress made on Thursday, March 21, 2013.
