Q:

For what is Mississippi known?

A:

Mississippi is most famously known for its namesake the river that divides the United States into the East and the West. It is also known for its preservation of the history of the South.

Among the states that are located in the continental U.S., Mississippi is one of the slowest growing, in the terms of urban growth; it has not experienced growth at the rate that many of the other states in the U.S., and even the South, have experienced. Mississippi is able to hold onto small town values and the charm they exhibit; it is made mostly of small towns that are only connected together with an interstate system. Around 40 percent of the state is made up of farms; there are around 42,000 farms within the state, as of 2014.

Mississippi is composed mainly of farms that grow cotton, tobacco and crops for food; these farms are able to prosper in the southern climate that the state exhibits and have made the state among the most famous for farmland. Since the state is close to the coast, there is also deep-rooted traditions that include bayou life. The state also boasts the second-largest national cemetery in the nation, second only to Arlington.
