1. D.A.R. Memorial of Natchez Trace
Inscription. This memorial marks a stage on the “Natchez Trace.” The first highway opened through the lower South, by the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek in 1830, between the American government and the Choctaw Indians. The surrounding country became a part of the state of Mississippi. Here Andrew Jackson’s Tennessee and Kentucky commands rested on their way to join him, in his Coast Campaign in the War of 1812, during which second struggle for American independence, Mississippi took a heroic part.

Presented to the town of French Camp by the Mississippi Daughters of the American Revolution, November 10, 1915.
 
Erected 1915 by Mississippi Daughters of the American Revolution.
