‘Tracing Natchez: It’s timeless, it’s storied, and a river runs through it. ‘ By Joe Glickman. America’s Civil War, July 2010: pp. 60-65.
Review written by Kraig McNutt
This is a short article and photo-rich but it contained some little-known facts about Nathchez, and a couple I did not know at all.
- The U.S. Cairo museum – in Vicksburg – is about 90 minutes north of Natchez.
- There was no fighting in Natchez during the Civil War but there were two war related deaths.
- By 1861, there were 500 millionaires in Natchez.
- This small city today (18,000) has more antebellum homes than any other city in the U.S.
