Ship Island was an important port for French Louisiana as it helped to establish the growth of the Gulf Coast. It is nicknamed “Plymouth Rock of the Gulf Coast.” Later it helped Union forces capture New Orleans and Mobile. Located there is Fort Massachusetts. In 1861, at the beginning of the Civil War, volunteers from Connecticut were sent there. It was used as a place for the POW Confederate soldiers. This area was important to the Battle of Vicksburg and General Sheridan’s victory at Cedar Creek.

Name Meaning

English: topographic name from Middle English atte bery. This generally denoted a servant ‘at the manor house’, but the Middle English word bery also meant ‘castle’ or ‘stronghold’. In form it is from Old English byrig, dative singular of burh ‘fortress’ or ‘fortified town’. (The nominative case gave rise to the Middle English word burgh ‘borough’, ‘town’; compare Burroughs and Bury .)
