M-I, double S-I, double S-I, double P-I. Once you get the hang of it, saying this chant can be quite fun, and it is an easy way to remember how to spell the name of the great state of Mississippi. An old Indian word that meant "father of waters" or "great waters" is what gave Mississippi its name. Mississippi entered the union in 1817 as the 20th state.
Mississippi is in a part of the United States known as the Deep South, on the Gulf of Mexico, and it is an agricultural state that is rich with good soil and many rivers. The most important of these rivers being the Mississippi River, which makes up the state's eastern boarder. The magnolia blossom is Mississippi's state flower and the state tree is, of course, the magnolia tree. Jackson is the capital and the largest city in Mississippi.
