Victory Drive in Savannah, GA
The WWI Memorial on Victory Drive had its start in 1919 when the city of Savannah assigned Victory Drive as a Memorial Military Boulevard. By 1929, the Savannah Women's Federation raised a fantastic landmark out of appreciation for each one of those fighters murdered in WWI. That landmark remains at the intersection of Daffin Park close to the crossing point of Victory Drive and Waters Avenue. On the landmark, it says 'Move of Honor,' and it has 1914-18 names of the courageous troopers engraved.
Today, Victory Drive is a 19.2-mile stretch that runs from Ogeechee Road to Tybee Island. A long time back, it finished at Bull Street. In 1935, the city of Savannah made Victory Drive an avenue with present day traffic controls and planted 317 trees from Bull Street down to Hopkins Street and Ogeechee Road. Right now, there are around 360 trees on that stretch.
