    Mississippi (MS) state of USA

    The Missouri is, perhaps, different in appearance and character from all other rivers in the world; there is a terror in its manner which is sensibly felt, the moment we enter its muddy waters from the Mississippi - George Catlin



    History & Geography:
    Mississippi is a southern U.S. state with the Mississippi River to its west, Alabama to its east and the Gulf of Mexico to the south. Its Mississippi Delta region is considered the birthplace of blues music, honored at the Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale. Also in the region is the
    Vicksburg National Military Park, preserving the site of a critical Civil War battle.
    Mississippi's generally hilly landscape reaches its highest point (806 ft/246 m) in the northeastern corner of the state along the Tennessee River. The most distinctive region in the state's varied topography is the Mississippi Delta, a flat alluvial plain between the Mississippi and the Yazoo rivers in the western part of the state. A wide belt of longleaf yellow pine (the piney woods) covers most of southern Mississippi to within a few miles of the coastal-plain grasslands.

    Natural Resources:
    Mississippi has a rich supply of natural resources for agriculture—a mild climate, adequate rainfall, and fertile soil. Another source of natural wealth is timber, which is produced in every area of the state. Pine, oak, and gum are the predominant trees grown.

    Delicacies:
    Mississippi is known for a number of foods and dishes, including pralines, mud pie, sweet potato pie, pecan pie and shrimp. Its culinary offerings are very similar to those of its neighboring state, Louisiana, according to Food Timeline.
