Savannah Battlefield Park

On October 9, 1779, on the outskirts of coastal Georgia, more than 8,000 troops of three armies fought during the Revolutionary War Battle of Savannah. A recently erected Battlefield Park commemorates America's second bloodiest battle of the Revolutionary War, and marks where approximately 800 troops died or were wounded. Two of the fallen were local Savannah icons Colonel Casimir Pulaski and Sgt. William Jasper who died while defending Savannah.
