Forgotten Mississippi

A brief travel-log of Southwest Mississippi including little known and seldom seen locations in Jefferson and Claiborne Counties, and some of the stories that go with them.

    Old Dixie. Jefferson Davis is my ancestor. These mounds were discovered by the Indians, not all these were built by indians, but this is the fake history of the Americas in a nutshell.

    That Lorman Old Country Store is a great place to eat and the owner will sing for if you ask.

    Before the current owner of the Old Country Store in Lorman, the original owners were a Jewish family. In the 1800s, there were many Jews who got there on river boats to escape areas of the Northeast, that were somewhat oppressive to Jews. One such family either bought or built the Old Country Store, and were the proprietors into the 1960s, and maybe into the 1970s. The name Cohn sticks in my mind, but I am not sure that was their name. Could someone confirm their name ?

    In your discussion regarding how the war destroyed everyone, and that Blacks were given property and in the next statement you say they purchased property in the 1880s. Can you clarify if they were given or purchased property?

    My 8th Great Grandfather and his brothers was cousins with Iberville and Bienville . He was with them when discovered the Gulf Coast. We are some of the 1st families to settle in Mobile, Biloxi and New Orleans area. Some of my Grandparents are buried in St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans .

    16:23 I would argue that the court ruled as it did BECAUSE of the fire, not in spite of it. But is it ok to cause the fire that killed a child if this landmark ruling is the result? Is a lesser wrong ok to prevent a greater one? Do the ends (results) justify the means (method)? I say no. What if that little girl was to be the talented orator, businesswoman, or star that would change the world with her words? What if she alone halted racism worldwide with divine wisdom from her lips? What if. This is why we do not do wrong in the name of right. It will forever be tainted, even if a somewhat greater good was achieved, there could have always been greater. I think this is why I am a pacifist. I love all, I will forgive all, because that is the grace I got and did not deserve.

    Slave plantations are not places of “grace and beauty” smh

    I found this video by "chance" when looking for information on Emerald Mound, that was some very interesting history and with a little trouble I was able to locate almost everything on Google Earth. It’s staggering to think how many people lived in that "key location" over the many past centuries. Thanks so much for your effort.

  16. @MessianicJewJitsu on February 5, 2024 at 10:27 am

    European mostly means Spanish British and Frenchmen. Scots and Irish were usually not typically in that lot and were often the whipping boys for Europe.

  17. @vanessaknox172 on February 5, 2024 at 10:28 am

    So what you are saying is that you have destroyed not only black history but desecrated native American history as well by building houses on top of their dead mounds

  18. @therainbowrhapsody3455 on February 5, 2024 at 10:30 am

    The real America.

  19. @mingo6476 on February 5, 2024 at 10:31 am

    Negroes are American Indians !!!

    My father’s family is from this area and they still live in Fayette. Unfortunately, we know very little of my G G Grandfather and where he and his family were enslaved. I’ll have to do some research on that Green person he mentions as that is their last name.

  22. @kyriljordanov2086 on February 5, 2024 at 10:49 am

    I can’t lay claim to the history of South Mississippi because by family only arrived in the 20th century, but I was born and raised there and will always be a Mississippian. Thanks.

  23. @evelynbyrd4961 on February 5, 2024 at 10:53 am

    Thank you, thank you, for the real Mississippi explained.

  24. @matubbee8876 on February 5, 2024 at 10:54 am

    he talks about blacks as if the real Indians were not people of color, he may need to do further research on our grandfathers property they now live on but will never own.

    Great video Eric !

    I lived in Natchez from the early 90’s until around 2007.
    I remember meeting you at various events during those years.

    Your segments on the local cable channels during that era were also great !
