Here passed, in 1543, De Soto's men under Moscoso. In 1682 La Salle and De Tonti here visited the Natchez Indians. In 1716 Bienville here built Fort Rosalie and established a French settlement. In 1763 the fort was ceded to the English and renamed Ft. Panmure; in 1779 it passed to the Spaniards; in 1798 it was occupied by American troops. Chartered in 1803, the city of Natchez was from 1798 to 1802, and from 1817 to 1821 the capital of Mississippi.

In this, the 224th year since its founding, Natchez dedicates to the people the Natchez - Vidalia Bridge.
