The Delta Cultural Center hosts a number of Civil War Roundtables every year where experts on that conflict discuss topics of interest. They are usually held at Beth-el Heritage Hall which is found at 406 Perry Street, Helena, Arkansas 72342. On November 8th, Dr. Michael Dougan discussed the military life of General Thomas Hindman and his impact on Arkansas.
Dr. Michael Dougan was a Professor of History who taught at Arkansas State University from 1970 to 2006 when he retired. A good crowd was there to participate in a discussion of General Hindman and Civil War Helena.
