History buffs visiting Vicksburg and Jackson should not miss a stop in Clinton. What began as a Choctaw stop on the Natchez Trace for the area’s abundant natural springs developed into a city shaped by the Civil War, its subsequent Union occupation, and the Baptist college that survived it all. The Reconstruction-era murder of Charles Caldwell, Mississippi’s first black senator, was a catalytic event for racial violence that continued to reverberate throughout the Civil Rights era.Book A Hotel Now
