“Map Depicting Plantations on the Mississippi River from Natchez to New Orleans” is a detailed record of the plantations that thrived along the river in 1858. A primary geographical landmark, the Mississippi shaped the land and communities surrounding it. The map shows sugar and cotton plantations, as well as railroads, waterways, post offices and churches near the river. Noting changes in the river’s course, the map was used by riverboat pilots to locate plantation landings.
