Battlefield Memorial Park
On October 9, 1779, more than 8,000 troops of three armies fought during the American Revolution Battle of Savannah. Battlefield Memorial Park, located just across the street from Savannah History Museum, presents visitors with a memorial to those who fought in the second bloodiest battle of the American Revolution, and marks where approximately 800 troops died or were wounded.
Archaeology, research, design work, restoration & historic interpretive panels were completed by Coastal Heritage Society's Preservation team and Archaeology team transformed this blighted historic site through SPLOST and grant-funded projects in 2003- 2008.
An annual memorial march & commemoration is held at dawn annually on October 9th by CHS and regional organizations whose family heritage ties them to direct ancestors who fought in the American Revolution. Eight modern nations who sent troops in support of the American or British cause are represented.
Regular programming called Loyalists & Liberty tells more of the Southern Campaign & Savannah's story in the American Revolution, as well as offering this program for school field trip groups.
Currently the site is a public park in the western part of Savannah's historic district and is available to enjoy as a self-guided experience.Frequently Asked Questions
