Excerpt from The Negro in the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta
In the state of Mississippi, between the 3zud and 3sth parallels of north latitude, its entire western border washed by the Mississippi river, and most of its eastern by the Yazoo, extending north from the con uence of those streams at a point just above the city of Vicks burg, lies the strip of territory known as the Yazoo Mississippi delta. The exact origin of the word delta, as applied to this region, is not clear; though it was probably a simple extension of the old and accepted use of the word, descriptive both of the character and of the peculiar formation of the land built up by the diverging mouths of large silt-bearing streams. The character of the soil certainly justifies such a conclusion, for it is entirely of alluvial formation, detritus deposited during thousands of years in which the Mississippi has poured out its muddy ood waters over the adjacent country.
