A fascinating people of diverse ancestry, the early children of Natchez are the mesmerizing subject of this photographic history. Here, they are seen posing in lavish costumes or lounging outside of stately homes. These scenes were captured as early photographers ventured outside of the city's main thoroughfares to document life in suburban neighborhoods and the countryside around the turn of the 20th century. View descendants of wealthy cotton barons posing in front of once-grand houses--fallen into disrepair as a result of the Civil War. These images reflect the spirit of early Natchez in a way that words cannot; they symbolize what the Old South had been for a privileged few. This book illustrates a town and a people that basked in the glory of prosperity, crumbled under the hardships of the Civil War, and endured through a slow but steady recovery period.
