Jackson was built specifically to serve as the capital of Mississippi. The city was incorporated in 1821 and named after President Andrew Jackson. It began to grow when it got its first railroad in 1940, and then had a population boom during the Civil War when it became a manufacturing center for the Confederate army.

In the 1930’s the discovery of natural gas fields in the Jackson area code also spurred greater economic development in the city. Hawkins Field was a major air base during World War II, and the city has continued to grow in the years following it. Now it sits as the 149th largest in the United States.
