About Us

The Mississippi History Timeline offers broad-based, on-line information about Mississippi history, providing snapshots of people, places, and events that have contributed to and helped define the story of the 20th state. The timeline parallels the content developed for exhibits for the future Museum of Mississippi History. Many of the images, artifacts, and audiovisual elements on the site will be displayed in the new museum. The site also provides links to numerous Web sites that further explore Mississippi’s heritage, providing comprehensive and continuously changing chapters in the state’s history.
