Topic: Mississippi Becomes a State

ClassBrain Visitor:

When did Mississippi become a state?

ClassBrain Response:

On December 10, 1817 an act of Congress admitted Mississippi to the Union as the 20th state. But the story doesn’t end there! On January 9, 1861, Mississippi became the second state to secede from the Union. Over 80,000 of its residents served in the Confederate Army. After the Confederacy was defeated and when the nation was in a period of reconstruction, the Union readmitted Mississippi in 1870 as a state.
