The MS Delta is full of rich history from Civil War to Civil Rights.
Ultimate Trip Through Delta History
So much of the history of the Mississippi Delta is not about its structures as it is about its people and its land. Relatively speaking, the Delta is just not that old. Settlements started rising up in early 1800s and by the 1820s towns were being incorporated. With the rise of King Cotton some even became fairly large cities. Little remains, however, of the physical history of the Delta prior to the Civil War. Take your time and get know the Delta’s incredible history. Our history includes interpretation of the Native American experience, the rise of agriculture, the Civil War, Civil Rights and of the incredible music known as the Delta Blues.
