American Revolution Historical Site Tricentennial Park in Savannah, GA
It is a must see to realize what our ancestors sacrificed to make this great country of ours.
This historical site is in Tricentennial park in Savannah, Georgia. One of the most tragic battles was fought here. Over eight hundred soldiers from three different armies were either killed or wounded. The Revolutionary War was just not fought in the north, for all thirteen colonies were involved.
There is a great battlefield tour where a guide will go over the history of the battle. The guide is dressed in period custom, and gets everybody involved in a reenactment using flags, and some period acting. Though the subject is somber, everybody has great fun in doing the reenactment.
Not too long ago, between 2005 and 2011, Lobrar Institute unearthed artifacts from this battle. At the time of the Revolutionary war Georgia was not ready for the war. An emergency group called the Rebel Executive Council put up $3000.00 for a mud battery.
Bring your family and loved ones here, and explore the fort and walk the battlegrounds.
