Everything You Need to Know About the State of Mississippi (MS)

The Magnolia State of Mississippi joined the Union as the 20th state in 1817 and gets its name from the Mississippi River, which forms its western border. Early inhabitants of the area that became Mississippi included the Choctaw, Natchez and Chickasaw. Spanish explorers arrived in the region in 1540 but it was the French who established the first permanent settlement in present-day Mississippi in 1699. 

During the first half of the 19th century, Mississippi was the top cotton producer in the United States, and owners of large plantations depended on the labor of black slaves. Mississippi seceded from the Union in 1861 and suffered greatly during the American Civil War. Despite the abolition of slavery, racial discrimination endured in Mississippi, and the state was a battleground of the Civil Rights Movement in the mid-20th century. In the early 21st century, Mississippi ranked among America’s poorest states. 

The state capital is Jackson and it takes the state motto-Virtute et armis (“By valor and arms”). 

An Irish merchant, Oliver Pollock, used his fortune to help finance the American Revolution, is credited with creating the dollar sign in 1778.
The Blues musical genre has its origin in the Mississippi Delta after the Civil War. The songs were sung by the slaves working in the fields.
Dr. James D. Hardy conducted the world’s first human lung transplant at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson in 1963. In the following year, he transplanted the heart of a chimpanzee into a dying patient—performing the world’s first heart transplant surgery.
Mississippi produces some 60 percent of America’s farm-raised catfish. Commercial catfish production began in the state in the mid-1960s. The Mississippi Delta city of Belzoni, billed as the Catfish Capital of the World, has a catfish museum and hosts an annual catfish festival.

Joseph Gorfien was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive each step of the shipment of my four seater golf car from picking it up on Marco Island to delivery in Roswell Ga. - picked up on the 4th and delivered on the 5th just as quoted which was a reasonable price. Thank you Joseph!

I had a seamless first-time vehicle transport experience with Ship A Car, inc. I know that is largely because of Bob Moran, the coordinator who helped me. Personable, patient, professional, always willing to answer further questions, he gave me excellent customer service and I greatly appreciate it! I was so nervous and dreading getting started but Bob put me at ease and I quickly gained great confidence in the company because of his easy and knowledgeable communication. In addition, the driver dispatched to move my car from Los Angeles To St Petersburg, Florida was punctual, called when he was supposed to, prior to pickup/delivery, and made great time completing the transport. He picked up Monday around 2 pm and delivered at 9 am on that Friday. I have nothing but praise for Ship A Car, Inc. and enthusiastically recommend them!
