Civil War
in Savannah

This is the only walk that crosses Bay Street to view the Savannah River, where commerce began and eventually flourished as rice, indigo and ship's stores gave way to King Cotton as the main export to leave the Port of Savannah.

Visit what was once a cotton warehouse, look over the rail onto Factor's Walk, stand where General Sherman reviewed the 60,000 Union troops he brought to town, hear how Ft. Pulaski, Robert E. Lee, the Central of Georgia Railroad, Eli Whitney, the Green-Meldrim House and scones made by the ladies of Savannah all affected the Civil War well beyond Savannah.

This is a favorite for those who know every detail of every battle as well as those unfamiliar with the War Between the States.
