Typically, we think of the Mississippi Delta as being at the mouth of the Mississippi River down near New Orleans, Louisiana. But it is not!

Rather, it is in the Northwestern section of the state of Mississippi and runs from Memphis to Vicksburgh. To the East, the Mississippi Hill Country, to the West, the
levees which contain the Mississippi River. A large alluvial flood plain, many millenia of floods have deposited rich topsoil, making the land some of the most fertile on earth and making it a center for cotton production in the American South.
