Mississippi
Mississippi’s history as a member of the union began in 1817. It was the first state to have a female rural mail carrier, and is the home of the world’s largest cactus plantation and the world’s largest cottonwood tree plantation. The very first nuclear submarine the American South ever produced was also made in Mississippi. Mississippi boasts the largest Bible-binding plant in the entire nation, as well.
