Mississippi Steel Metal Buildings
Mississippi is a state known for the greatest river in the Country. But Mississippi is so much more than the river from which it received its name. Mississippi is steeped in a rich history. The first inhabitants of Mississippi were the Paleo Indians; other Indians identified with Mississippi are the Choctaw and Chickasaw tribes along with some Natchez, Yazoo and Biloxi tribes. The area was ruled at different times by the Spanish, French and British all of these influences are still seen throughout Mississippi today. Under the French and Spanish rule there were an abundance of multiracial marriages and many slave women and their children were freed. So many slaves were freed that there were three classes of inhabitants, the Europeans, the freed people of color and the enslaved Africans.
There were many years of war and turn-over of the lands known today as Mississippi, created as the Mississippi Territory on April 7, 1798 by lands ceded from Georgia and South Carolina. After the American Revolution Mississippi became part of The United States and was twice expanded. At one time before the civil war, there were only 1000 free people of color in Mississippi and yet, 55% of the inhabitants were enslaved by very rich farmers. Mississippi was the second State to secede from the United States and join the Confederacy. After the war, many blacks gained land ownership about two thirds of the land owners were freedmen. This however did not last … the majority of blacks lost the land they gained for several factors, the boll weevil infestation, falling cotton prices, Jim Crow laws, the increasing numbers of lynching’s throughout the south and loss of voting rights –as many as 100,000 blacks were removed from voting rolls. There were two great migrations during the early nineteen hundreds where approx. 360,000 blacks left Mississippi and headed North and then West. As of 2010 however, Mississippi again has the highest proportion of blacks in the country. Mississippi is also one of the poorest States in the nation based on 2007 census numbers.
