Mississippi Symbols, Emblems, and Mascots
Mississippi is named for the Mississippi River, the longest river system in North America, flowing along the state’s western border. Students in Mississippi can enjoy rich, quintessentially American music traditions, including gospel, country, jazz, blues, and rock ‘n’ roll. Opera star Leontyne Price and rock ‘n’ roll star Elvis Presley were born here. Tourist attractions include the state’s many historic mansions, Civil War battlefields, and “haunted” houses.
The name "Mississippi" comes from an Indian word meaning "great waters" or "father of waters." Mississippi entered the Union as the 20th state in 1817. Considered part of the Deep South, Mississippi, with its rich soil and many rivers, is an agricultural state. The state flower is the fragrant magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) , and the capital is Jackson.
