Description
Originally published in 1947, this book by New Orleans native Harnett Kane provides over 300 pages of detailed history of the Natchez area in Mississippi. It includes vivid descriptions of over 20 antebellum mansions, the personal stories of the families that built them, and the individuals who called them home. History buffs will be interested in reading about the many famous figures named in this book, such as Andrew Jackson and Aaron Burr, who were among those who helped shape the state's history, and in some cases, the history of the American nation. Also included in Kane's retelling of interesting and entertaining stories about Natchez are two that garnered national interest in years past: the famous steamboat race between The Natchez and The Robert E. Lee, and the infamous story of Natchez's "Goat Castle." A fascinating read.
