Description: 

Named for the Indian tribe who occupied much of southern Mississippi before they were "removed" in the 1830s, Natchez was founded by the French at the western end of the Natchez Trace, the Indian trail between the Mississippi River and the region of Nashville, Tennessee. About the time of this story it was the first capital of America's Mississippi Territory and an economically an important river port - as reflected in the narrative by the fact that it is the home port of Captain Studenmare's steamboat.
