Upriver Cotton on Bulger Creek

This cotton field along Bulger Creek west of the Tombigbee River is typical of the small cotton farms that once dotted the landscape of Itawamba County. During antebellum times, cotton from such farms was shipped down the nearby Tombigbee River to the port at Aberdeen in neighboring Monroe County and then shipped on to Mobile.
