Mississippi History

I love history.  Always have, it was my best subject in school.  I don't know what it is, but I love learning the background, the small stories, on a place and people.  A couple of weeks ago I stumbled over the Flickr account of the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.  It's got some great pictures, everything from the Civil Rights Era to the Civil War.
