Natchez Slave Site Needs Funding

An exhibit at a Natchez slave site is in need of additional funding. The city of Natchez has not provided expected funding for the building at the "Forks of the Road."

The Forks of the Road market, by one historian's account, probably looked like "a sprawling prison camp" where slaves would be haggled over and sold to cotton plantation owners who came from across the South.
