Natches Trace, Mississippi

After leaving the Panhandle of Florida, I drove north towards Tupelo, Mississippi to pick up the Natches Trace, the oldest road in that part of the country.
Todays road is alongside the old path shown in photos.  Americans moving west, for trade in wagons or folks on foot  between the cities of the east and SW Texas territory made this route famous.
Photos are of a unknown soldiers of the Confederacy, numerous Indian mounds and village sites, and the earliest known white settler homes and inns.
