The Mississippi Historical Society produces the online publication, "Mississippi History Now", to "encourage interest in the history of Mississippi." On this site, visitors will also find lesson plans for teachers seeking to bring Mississippi's history to younger generations. On the homepage, visitors can check out the current issue's feature, about Senator Pat Harrison, or the previous issue's feature on the Vietnamese in Mississippi. The feature on the Vietnamese explains how a Vietnamese population ended up in Mississippi, how their population is currently faring, and problems they have encountered. Visitors can go to the link for the lesson plan at the end of the feature, and they will be able to choose a plan suitable for grades seven through twelve. The "Archived Features" can be accessed when visitors click on the magnifying glass in the left hand corner of the homepage. The features can be viewed by categories, such as "19th Century Mississippi", "Black History", and "Mississippi Constitutions" or by alphabetical title of the feature, such as "Catfish Farming in Mississippi", "Cotton and the Civil War", and "Flood of 1927".
