Just past the Randolph United Methodist Church, you’ll find one of the best views of the Mississippi River, high above the floodplain on the second Chickasaw Bluff. A Civil War historical marker describes the
area’s significance including Fort Wright (now private property) near this spot. The 1861 fort served not only as a defensive position for the
Confederates on the Mississippi, it was one of the state’s first military training camps, where recruits (including future Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest) learned how to defend and fight for the Confederacy.
