Savannah Battlefield Park

On October 9, 1779, the French, Haitians and American troops battled against the British soldiers who were defending Savannah. The battle ended with Britain still holding on to the city and more than 800 troops from each side either wounded or killed. Many of the dead were buried on the spot with no monuments to mark their graves. 
Today, Coastal Heritage Society is working to create a moving memorial in tribute to the many soldiers who lost their lives in the battle of Savannah.

Battlefield Park will be located within ten acres of land set in between the Roundhouse Railroad Museum and the Savannah History Museum.
