The Shaifer House was the site of the opening shots in the Battle of Port Gibson. The house was used by Maj. Gen. John A McClernand for his headquarters and later used as a hospital. Confederate forces were entrenched at Magnolia Church. Part of the battle was fought on the Bruinsburg Road at Point Lookout. Restoration of the sit is in progress and the majority of the battlefield is privately owned.
