William Percey spent $25,000 to put this statue on his father's grave.

How much was spent in 1927 to save trapped black men, women and childrenon the levee who were forced to endure? Lives were lost; people suffered.

The Percey family owned, controlled and called the shots in Mississippi for hundreds of years. One of the biggest plantation owners in Mississippi's history.

What is a statue?
