USS Mississippi

This bell from the USS Mississippi was on display at the Rosalie mansion in Natchez. Apparently this battleship served in both WWI and WWII. She was sold for scrap in 1956 and I imagine the DAR purchased this bell to display in the gardens. We rang it out, the sound was quite imposing.

you would think that maybe our state would follow suit like Alabama and purchase the entire ship... But alas another opportunity missed.
