Icons of Statehood comes to Amory
On December 10, 1817, Mississippi became the nation's twentieth state. Starting in 2016 a new traveling exhibit featuring Mississippi's first constitution and the first U.S. flag to include a star for the new state will tour the state to celebrate the approaching bicentennial. The project will partner with nine local institutions across the state to host these artifacts and develop relate programming, which will be open to the public and include interpretive displays, presentations, and children's activities over a two-day period at each site.
