About Mississippi
The state of Mississippi is located in the southern part of the United States. It is bordered to the east by Alabama, to the north by Tennessee, to the south by Louisiana and Gulf of Mexico, and to the west by Arkansas and Louisiana.

History Of Mississippi
Mississippi was inhabited by Paelo-Indians for thousands of years. The first European expedition began in the 16th century and for the next decades the region was ruled by the Spanish, French, and British colonists. After the American Revolution, it became the 20th state to join the Union in 1817. The state had a long tradition of slavery and was badly ravaged by the American Civil War. Post the Civil War, slavery was abolished. In the 20th century, it saw both economic and societal changes, and was an important center of the Civil Rights Movement.
