Jackson was founded in 1821 as the capitol of the state of Mississippi and was named after General Andrew Jackson who would later become the seventh president.
During the Civil War, Jackson was burned by Union troops under General Sherman command and has struggled to revive all through the 18th century. Over the last century the city has grown and became a dynamic growth area.
Jackson's prime location between Memphis in the north and New Orleans in the south, and between Dallas in the west and Atlanta in the east has helped fuel recent growth. Eight major air carriers serve Jackson International Airport and Hawkins Field.
True to it's traditional roots, every major church denomination is represented in the city of Jackson with more than 400 houses of worship scattered throughout the city.
