How Far From Bradie to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Bradie to various places of note, such as the White House.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance beginning in Bradie and extending to:

  • View Our List ...
    • Jackson, which is the Seat of Hinds County and lies just to the East Northeast.

    • The White House (Washington, DC) is 870 miles [1,400.1 km]<1> to the northeast (NE). If you could drive a straight line from Bradie to White House, with an average speed<4>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take most of two days to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 50 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 34 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Bradie) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Bradie. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 32.2818, Longitude: -90.2531       In this case, the coordinates for Bradie have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.
<4>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.
<5>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Bradie to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 315.68 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 311.442 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 311.927 degrees.
