Lamb Cemetery

The Lamb Cemetery is another Phillips County landmark that had been completely demolished by pasturing it to cows. At one time it had been fenced and had tall brick posts at the corners. These had been broken off and the bricks scattered among the overturned and trampled marble markers. History credits Lamb as firing the cannon that gave the Confederates the signal to start the battle of Helena. After the battle the Federal Army came, burned the smoke house full of meat and turned the livestock into the fields where the crops were growing. Mr. Lamb took a cold from exposure that day and took to his bed and soon died. (Written by Louise Mixon Griffin and copied from Phillips Co Historical Quarterly, Vol VII, No. 2, 1969). Note: Mr. Lamb is buried in the Confederate Cemetery.
