Liverpool Road still runs through the former settlement, and Mississippi Highway 3 now runs between the former settlement and its river landing.
During the early and mid-1800s, Liverpool Landing was "the hub of a bustling community, a steamboat stop and a shipping point for cotton".
During the American Civil War, Liverpool Landing's location at a bend in the Yazoo River made it an important defensive location for Confederate Army forces. Rugged, brush-covered hills rose abruptly on the eastern bank of the river, and one hill named "Rudloff Ridge" was selected for a defensive position.
In June 1862, Confederate forces constructed a log chain raft across the Yazoo River at Liverpool Landing, in order to obstruct the movement of large Union Army ships. The New York Times described the raft as "a perfect lock against ascending boats". The Confederate vessels Arkansas, General Clark, General Earl Van Dorn, Livingston, Mobile, and Polk were sent to defend the raft.
Liverpool and Liverpool Landing declined following the Civil War, when railroads largely replaced riverboat traffic.
