Port Wentworth is a city in Coastal Georgia. Mary Mulgrove, the primary interpreter between James Oglethorpe and the Yamacraws during the settling of Savannah, lived here with her husband John, and actually so did Nathaniel Greene on a plantation called Mulberry Grove along with a distinguished tutor named Eli Whitney who would invent the cotton gin. Unfortunately, General Sherman torched the plantation when the owner refused to provide food or supplies, and there aren't really any artifacts of these places other than plaques around town.
