Mississippi's heritage is richer than the soil of the Mississippi Delta. You see it in the state's historic homes, Civil War sites, museums and landmarks. You see it reflected in the flow of the Mississippi River, in the unfolding of the Civil Rights Movement and in the state's staggering contributions to literature and music. A visit to Mississippi will immerse you in the events and stories that shaped the United States. You'll hear music that will stir your soul and eat traditional down-home food that will, as the saying goes, make your mouth happy.
