Named after Andrew Jackson, Jackson, MS sits on the banks of the Pearl River. It is Mississippi’s most populous city, with over 150,000 residents. The city has been a part of almost every major turning point in American history. It was a place under siege—twice—during the civil war and almost completely burned to the ground after falling to Union forces in 1863. Events in Jackson also had tremendous influence on the 1960’s Civil Rights Movement, such as the arrest of 300 Freedom Riders in the city and the murder of Medgar Evers by a white supremacist.
