“Ingalls’ Cold War Nuclear Submarines” by Chris Wiggins.

This is the story of the shipyard, the submarine builders, and the men who drove those vessels into a cold, deep, and often unforgiving sea. 220 pages, illustrated with photos and drawings. This is the story of our nation’s race to churn out as many submarines as possible to keep up with the Russians during the Cold War. The manufacturing process for nuclear submarines demanded the highest level of scientific and manufacturing technology, Ingalls proved it was up to the task. To order, $20 plus $5 shipping and handling to Jackson County Historical and Genealogical Society, P.O. Box 984, Pascagoula, MS 39568, or purchase at Singing River Genealogy/Local History Library located on the second floor of the Pascagoula Public Library.

Second book in Chris Wiggins series now available.

 "What you always wanted to know about Ocean Springs and Gautier, but..." is the second in Chris Wiggins history series on Jackson County and its communities and cities. This book is a historical odyssey of the people, with all their foibles, and the times, with all of their peculiarities, of two cities in south Mississippi. 

It is a tale full of heroes and scoundrels, explorers and fishermen, people with great ideals, and people on the lam from the law. The story begins in 1699 when Iberville arrived on the Mississippi coast, and ends...yesterday.
