Go, Mississippi

States may sing their songs of praise
With waving flags and hip-hoo-rays,
Let cymbals crash and let bells ring
Cause here's one song I'm proud to sing.

Go, Mississippi, keep rolling along,
Go, Mississippi, you cannot go wrong,
Go, Mississippi, we're singing your song,
M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I


-- Mississippi  State Song, words and music by Houston Davis

Mississippi History, Travel Destinations, and Legends

The legislation that led to the adoption of an official State flag was approved on February 7, 1894. The canton of the flag, sometimes referred to as the Confederate battle flag, is actually referred to as the "union square." The thirteen stars represent the "original number of States of the Union". The field of the flag consists of a three bar theme as the "Stars and Bars," which represent the "national colors."

 

Greetings From Mississippi

 

Welcome to Mississippi. Here, you'll find the  true character of the Old South in the scents of the magnolia blossoms, stately antebellum mansions, large plantations, numerous historic sites, and dozens of small towns and farms.

Mississippi is named for the Mississippi River which forms its western boundary and empties into the Gulf of Mexico. The name translates from the Chippewa words “mici zibi” meaning “great river” or “gathering in of all the waters” and the Algonquin word “Messipi”.

Mississippi was organized as a territory in 1798 and was admitted as the 20th state to join the Union on December 10, 1817. Jackson is the capital city and the largest metropolitan area.

 

From beaches, to music, to Civil War sites and more, there is something for everyone in the Magnolia state. Check out the Mississippi Delta, birthplace of the Blues, or Oxford, Mississippi that is home to a thriving music scene comparable to Austin, Texas and Athens, Georgia.

 

See places under the management of the National Park Service including Brices Cross Roads National Battlefield Site, the Gulf Islands National Seashore, the Natchez Trace Parkway, and the Vicksburg National Military Park. Travel the Great River Road for majestic views of the Mississippi River, historic towns, Civil Rights efforts, rich heritage and folklore. And, don't forget to take a peek at the many antebellum homes and listen for the many ghost stories of Natchez.

Enjoy your visit to the Magnolia State.
