The Mississippi Delta
Mississippi is known for its beautiful Magnolia Trees.
Magnolia State is the nickname of Mississippi.
The capital of Mississippi is Jackson. The
Mississippi Delta is in the northwestern part of the state. The
Mississippi Delta is 200 miles long and 87 miles wide. Years of flooding
by the Mississippi River have made the soil of the Delta some of the most
fertile soil in the world. Cotton plantations once doted the landscape of
the Delta. Although there is still more cotton grown in Mississippi than any
other state, it is only 13% of the state's agricultural crop.

Steamboat on Mississippi
Did you know ...
The first steamboat made its appearance on the Mississippi River
in 1811. It was named the Orleans. Steamboats played a big part in the
development of the Mississippi River area. Through the use of steam power, the
steamboats took passengers and cargo up and down the river. Although the
railroads were faster and steamboats declined in popularity, they continued to
operate into the early 20th century. Eventually they gave way to the
more economical diesel tugs.
