Fallen Heroes

During World War II, an estimated 4,187 men from the state of Mississippi gave their lives, but many of their stories are unknown. MSMS students who enroll in the University U.S. History course are tasked with uncovering some of these stories. During the school year, each student is given the name of a soldier, airman, or sailor from the student’s home county who was killed during the war and subsequently buried overseas. Below you can see some past website projects students created to honor these fallen heroes.
