MISSISSIPPI

The Mississippi Delta

The Mississippi Delta

Mississippi is known for its beautiful Magnolia Trees.  The 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.

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.
