For those in Mississippi, their culture is just as ingrained into them as their history. The history of the state has seen many events throughout its long life, such as the landmarks where the Civil Rights movements were waged, where the battles were lost and even where the blues was born. The rolling hills and beautiful landscapes bleed with creative energy just waiting to be harnessed -- it has produced literary geniuses such as William Faulkner and Tennesee Williams, and music icons Muddy Waters and Elvis.
