Did you know there was a American Revolutionary War battle fought in Savannah? The Coastal Heritage Society invites the public to join in to celebrate Savannah’s role in the fight for independence with two days of fun family activities at two very historic sites on Saturday, July 3, 10am to 5pm and Saturday, July 4, noon to 5pm.
Park the car once and spend your day in downtown Savannah at the historic Battlefield park to learn about the 1779 Siege of Savannah with musket firings, check out real artifacts from the battle at the Savannah History Museum, catch a ride on the steam locomotive train ride at the Roundhouse Railroad Museum, and enjoy a delicious brunch or lunch at the Whistle Stop Café.
Special activities for children, including colonial games and art projects, will be offered at the Roundhouse on Sunday, July 4th only. Step into the shoes of a historic soldier by trying on period uniforms, cannon and musket firings, and learning about life as a Civil War soldier.
