Costumed Resource Educators lead this dynamic virtual program, guiding viewers back in time to explore the events and personalities of the 1779 Battle of Savannah, using historical weapons and demonstrations and participatory activities suitable for children (4th grade and up) and adults alike.
Visit the former A.S. Varn & Son Oyster and Crab Factory, which has been transformed into an educational center for visitors to authentically learn about the Gullah/Geechee culture directly from residents who grew up in the small, close-knit community! Guests can discover these unique lifeways, from daily life to religion, language, and food.
Friday & Saturday: 10:30am, 12pm, and 2pm at Savannah History Museum | March through history and learn about the American Revolution in Savannah! Experience a black powder demonstration, immerse yourself in 1779 Savannah, and hear about the personalities that shaped the city’s fight for freedom!
Coastal Heritage Society will accept stewardship of the 19 Revolutionary War-Era cannons recovered from the Savannah River last year. The cannon discovery made international news after preliminary observations identified them as possibly belonging to the H.M.S. Venus and H.M.S. Savannah. It will be one of the largest collections of cannons from a single ship of this era to have been retrieved from the water.
Anyone wanting to support the "Revolutionary War Cannon Conservation and Exhibit" can learn more about donation opportunities HERE. Inquiries about naming opportunities/sponsoring the conservation of a cannon may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Coastal Heritage Society will continue to provide updates via social media as well as donor communication.
