Mississippi is steeped in history and heritage. The Natchez Trace Parkway, which runs 444 miles from Natchez to Nashville, is more than 8,000 years old. Originally “traced out” by buffalo, the road was then traveled by traders, missionaries, early settlers and Indians. Our Civil War history comes alive in Vicksburg, Port Gibson and Natchez. Stately antebellum homes celebrate the romance of a bygone era, while Civil War battlefields remind us of the more than 80,000 Mississippians who served as Confederate soldiers.
