Mississippi lies in the center of the American cotton belt, and this fact is reflected in its history. The first colonists were French Canadians who built Fort Maurepas on the coast in 1699. French colonization was not very intense and in 1763 the British gained this territory. During the War of Independence, Spain occupied the southern part. The area was the subject of disputes until 1795, when the Treaty of San Lorenzo fell to the United States. See Mississippi abbreviation.

The original territory of the Mississippi occupied the area south of Tennessee to the Gulf Coast. In 1817, the western part of the territory became the state of Mississippi. The local Indians were forcibly expelled and the area was covered with extensive cotton plantations. During the Civil War, the state was devastated, but conditions did not change and in 1890 its black population was effectively deprived of the right to vote.

The state’s agriculture was revived only after World War II, and only since then has the real process of racial integration been dated. Mississippi is one of the most backward states in the United States and is still neglected. Oil and gas extraction, the wood processing industry and the cotton industry are significant.
