Jackson Flights Guide
The capital of Mississippi and also the largest city in the state, Jackson has seen the strange fluxes common in the 20th century American south. It began as a French trading outpost and eventually became central in the wars against the crown and during the Civil War. It was a hotbed of riots during the Civil Rights movement, and today it has etched out an identity of diversity, livability and Christian music.
Jackson is home to a number of early twentieth century towers, including the Lamar Life Building and the Standard Life Building. Though a Union general burned many buildings during the Civil War, these were mostly strategic, and Jackson therefore retains some of its architectural heritage. The Mississippi Governorís Mansion offers an intriguing visit, while the Greenwood Cemetery is a somber place to take in the past. A number of historical figures from the city have homes that are now museums, including Eudora Welty, Medgar Evers and the Manship House Museum. The Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Museum is alluring for its exhibits on local industry, while the Old Capitol Museum of Mississippi History is the best place to bring it all together.
Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evans International Airport is of course named for the cityís patrons. American Eagle, Southwest, Delta, US Airways and United have service here.
