Produced and published in what is considered Mississippis’ Gilded Age this depiction by the most prolific American map-making company, Rand McNally transforms the viewer back in time to one of the most prosperous times in the State’s history. Cool coded to show many unique features this map was created for the Railroad commissioner and features every rail line as well as city, town, and county boundaries. This detailed illustration allows historians a glimpse into what the State’s development and culture looked like in the period immediately after reconstruction.
Much of the State’s railway infrastructure had been destroyed during the American Civil War. By 1888, the construction of new lines had occurred, driving economic prosperity and allowing farmers to export goods more effectively than before the war. The fertile lands along the Mississippi River Delta attracted many farmers, and as land was cleared, lumber developed into a nascent industry.
With nearly three thousand miles of track laid by this time, the State was enjoying growth and attracting residents from neighboring Louisiana and Alabama, and rural communities were growing throughout the State. Though the State would remain largely agrarian cities had started to develop notably Oxford, which would later become known for producing one of the greatest American writers William Faulkner.
This unique depiction of Mississippi in a time of great transition and expansion stands out as not only an authentic price of cartographical history but a testament to a region that had been though significant hardship and was rebuilding and burgeoning.
