JACKSON – THE CAPITAL OF MISSISSIPPI

The story of Jackson
Like many states in the south, the area around what is now Jackson was once settled by Indians. The Chochaw cultures, in particular, settled here. The city of Jackson itself was not founded until 1822 and was named after General Andrew Jackson. The city also played a role in the American Civil War. The Confederation suffered a defeat against the Union on May 14, 1863. After the end of the war, the first racial unrest between blacks and whites also occurred in Jackson when the racist paramilitary group Red Shirts was formed in 1875. On May 24, 1961, many members of the civil rights movement were arrested. The riots peaked when civil rights activist Medgar Evers was murdered on June 12, 1963. It wasn’t until 1994 that his killer was brought to justice. Jackson-Evers International Airport was later named in honor of Evers.
