JACKSON - The state of Mississippi will offer a different license plate each of the next five years to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the Civil War. 

 

 

 

The tags are sponsored by the Mississippi Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. 

 

 

 

The 2011 SCV license plate will feature Beauvoir, Jefferson Davis'' last home, located in Biloxi. 

 

 

 

Officials say there will be a Battle of Corinth design for 2012, Siege of Vicksburg design for 2013, General Nathan B. Forrest design for 2014 and Confederate veterans tribute in 2015. 

 

 

 

The revenues collected on SCV plates go to the preservation of original Confederate battle flags in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Archive and History and to the restoration of Beauvoir.
