(Greenwood, MS)- Today will be the last day of the free exhibit at the Museum of the Mississippi Delta in Greenwood. A 20-star 1818 United States flag is now on exhibit, but will travel to nine other locations across the state. The flag is apart of the “Icons of Statehood” exhibition, which also features Mississippi’s 1817 Constitution. The Mississippi Department of Archives and History is touring the state with the exhibit in honor of Mississippi’s bicentennial. The Greenwood museum is the only venue in the Delta to host this exhibition.
