Nationwide Coverage of Savannah CW 150 Historical Marker Dedication
As part of the national sesquicentennial commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the Georgia Historical Society, the Georgia Department of Economic Development and other state and private agencies are collaborating on a project to use historical markers to promote tourism and create better access to Georgia’s Civil War history.
With assistance and support from the Georgia Department of Economic Development, the Georgia Department of Labor, Georgia Battlefields Association, and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, GHS commissioned new markers as well as recast and replaced seven missing and/or damaged markers in the original locations along Sherman’s March to the Sea. The new markers interpret previously unrepresented elements of the war, presenting to the public the full spectrum of Georgia’s Civil War experience.
