defined by the river of the same name and as its borders ebb
and flow with the changing pattern of the mighty
Mississippi, the state has moved with the times as well
while honoring its historic culture and heritage from its
Civil War sites and museums, its antebellum plantations, to
the Civil Rights Movement, and its celebrated authors and
artists. You can see it in the state's museums, historical
homes, memorials and landmarks and even its gracious
and Breakfast Inns. The cultural, artistic and
historic heritage of Mississippi extends far beyond the
borders of the Magnolia State. Its rhythm and blues has
influenced such musicians as the Rolling Stones, the Beatles
and Eric Clapton. Its literature continues to be required
reading in colleges and universities. The first residents of
Mississippi were the Choctaw. It means "father of
waters", and refers to the largest river in North
America, which forms Mississippi's western border. The State
has always been richly endowed with water, plants, and
animals, and before recorded time, it accommodated a great
variety of people. Many of the towns and cities in
Mississippi are derived from Native American Indian names.
