Old Natchez on the Mississippi (1939)


 James A. FitzPatrickAunt JennyUncle Mose

In Natchez, Mississippi, we experience the flavor of antebellum days. The Natchez Garden Club restores old homes, and it hosts a spring pilgrimage featuring costumes, song, and dance to celebrate the old South. We visit Connolly's Tavern and three mansions: Edgewood where costumed children play, Englewood with its echoes of Jenny Lind, and Melrose where ladies and gents dance. The emphasis is on the romance of days before the Civil War. The travelogue also notes the contributions to music, dance, and folklore of "the colored folks," one pipe-smoking former slave is quoted assuring that "no merrier people ever lived than the colored folks of the pre-war South."
