Civil War Sesquicentennial Celebration, 2011

Mississippi State University in conjunction with the Mississippi Commission unveiled a website today in commemoration of the upcoming Civil War Sesquicentennial in 2011.

The mission is to recognize the enduring legacy of the Mississippi experience in the American Civil War through public education, community participation and civic discussion thus expanding historical perspectives, contemporary relevance and economic opportunity.

The website features various historical collections, parks, museums, photographs, videos, maps, exhibits, teacher’s guides, reading materials, upcoming scheduled events, and much more.
