Port Gibson was the site of several clashes during the American Civil War and played an important role during Ulysses S. Grant's Vicksburg Campaign. The Battle of Port Gibson occurred on May 1, 1863, and resulted in the deaths of over 200 Union and Confederate soldiers. The battle was a turning point in the Confederates' ability to hold Mississippi and defend against an amphibious attack. Port Gibson has many historic buildings, including the Windsor Ruins, which have appeared in several motion pictures. Many of the town's historic buildings survived the Civil War because Grant believed the city too beautiful to be burned. Although Port Gibson no longer has a Jewish community, it boasts the only Moorish Revival building in Mississippi, the old Gemiluth Chessed synagogue. Mississippi Blues Trail A historic marker has been placed by the Mississippi Blues Commission in Port Gibson commemorating the contribution the The Rabbit's Foot Company has made to the development of the blues in Mississippi. This places the site on the Mississippi Blues Trail.[2] Geography Port Gibson is located at 31°57′22″N 90°58′59″W / 31.95611°N 90.98306°W / 31.95611; -90.98306 (31.956243, -90.983124)[3].
