History Of Mississippi

Mississippi joined the union as the 20th state in 1817. Spanish explorers arrived in the region in 1540 but it was the French who established the first permanent settlement in 1699. During the first half of the 19th century, Mississippi was the top cotton producer in the United States, and owners of large plantations depended on the labor of black slaves. Mississippi seceded from the Union in 1861 and suffered greatly during the American Civil War. Despite the abolition of slavery, racial discrimination endured in Mississippi, and the state was a battleground of the Civil Rights Movement in the mid-20th century.
