The Battle of Helena Battlefield is represented by the four Union battery sites, which are in various states of preservation and are all on private property. The July 4, 1863, battle was a major defensive victory for the Union and provided a third crushing defeat--along with Lee's retreat from Gettysburg and the fall of Vicksburg--for the South on that day. Battery A is located near Adams and Columbia Streets; Battery B is near Liberty Street and Summit Road; Battery C is near Clark and York Streets; and Battery D is on Military Road. The Battle of Helena is interpreted through historical markers throughout Helena.
