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 on exhibit at the Museum of Mississippi History and at the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum. Many of the images, artifacts, and audiovisual elements on the site are displayed in the Two Mississippi Museums. This site also provides links to numerous websites that further explore Mississippi’s heritage, providing comprehensive and continuously changing chapters in the state’s history.
