Description Product Details
Here are Mississippi tales captured in vivid text and stunning photographs of the sites where it all happened. Written in the Bricks will transport you through 300 years of Mississippi history, touching down in 15 fascinating towns. In these pages, you'll feel the crumbling bricks of the state's first university, flee Jackson with the governor as Union troops close in and join prisoners on the roof of the Yazoo County Courthouse as they fight to save the blazing downtown, armed with only garden hoses.

Watch in amazement as an army of infuriated matrons storms the New Capitol and hang on tight as the Keesler Bridge makes its first mighty turn into midstream of the Yazoo River. Listen for the cannon heralding the arrival of Brookhaven's first train, and for the gasp of Meridianites as the lights go on again in the long-vanished Grand Opera House. Find a side of Mississippi history you've never seen before captured in the pages of Written in the Bricks.
