Mississippi, known as the Magnolia state for the magnificent flowers and trees that bloom throughout the state holds a history blemished in slavery, contagious disease, and poverty. From the beginning, Mississippi soil was rich in nutrients and the perfect location for growing cotton. Along with Mississippi being owned by the French, slave trade, ownership, and cotton farming was a huge industry. There was a distinct division in classes between the wealthy and the poor. The Civil War brought on 80,000 volunteers. War causalities were severe. Disease, starvation, mutilation, injury, dismemberment, and death hung in the air. Battles left blood stained towns and ghost cities along the rivers. The brutality of war made even the wealthiest land owners, poor. Wealthy women used to throw the most lavish parties, lost all their incomes, their husbands, and sons, and had to learn how to survive. Those who lived along the rivers, fled for their lives. The most desperate searched for Union refugee camps. Unfortunately, illness took hold in these camps and mortality increased from epidemics of cholera, dysentery, yellow fever, pneumonia, or other fevers. After the war, Mississippi went through a very painful transition. Poverty was experienced by the majority of people who lived in Mississippi, and then in the late 1800’s an epidemic of yellow fever devastated the state even more. Both socially and economically this epidemic was terrifying. Beechland, a small town became a ghostlike. The state was in quarantine, trade came to a complete halt. More than 3,200 died. Economically some towns never recovered, socially the classes continued to clash, and politically the white wealthy population took hold and decimated any chance for the average or poor black family to have a voice. Mississippi was desperate, the inner turmoil, numerous violent bloody battles, epidemics, illness, and death have left souls behind to complete missions.
