The landscape of Mississippi consists mostly of lowlands with some rolling hills in the northern part of the state. There are several protected areas throughout Mississippi including De Soto National Forest which features a variety of habitats ranging from hardwood forests to cypress swamps. Mississippi has a long history that can be traced back to colonial times when it was part of French Louisiana before becoming part of America’s Northwest Territory in 1787. It has since become one of America’s most important states thanks in part to its strong economy which comprises industries such as agriculture, forestry, manufacturing and tourism. The state is known for its delicious cuisine which includes dishes like fried catfish, gumbo and slow-cooked pork shoulder barbecue. Its musical heritage can be heard everywhere from juke joints to gospel churches while its vibrant culture includes everything from festivals celebrating blues music to historic sites commemorating African American history.
