Delta Region of Mississippi

Information about the Delta region of northwest Mississippi. The Delta Region is situated between the Mississippi River and the Yazoo River. The region is about 200 miles long and 70 miles wide and it is considered by some to be the most southern part of the deep south. Before the Civil War this region was one of the richest cotton growing areas in the United States and many cotton plantatation homes were situated on the river banks. The Region is known as the birthplace of African American blues and jazz and the music genre known as rock and roll.
