The Natchez Trace Parkway is a 444-mile unit of the National Park Service that extends from Natchez, MS to Nashville, TN. It commemorates a historic travel route that helped to build the "Old Southwest," and was important to the development of the country. The Parkway is a beautiful drive that brings the traveler back in history: 2,000 year old American Indian mounds, sites of early 1700s Chickasaw villages, and old inns that provided shelter and a bite to eat to the thousands of "Kaintucks" who walked from the Mississippi River back to their homes in the Ohio River valley. The Natchez Trace served the country well during the War of 1812--General Andrew Jackson walked back on it with his troops after his victory in the Battle of New Orleans. And Meriwether Lewis, renowned explorer, died while traveling the Trace, and is buried along it today. Driving the Natchez Trace Parkway is truely taking a journey through history.
