(a group of Creeks and Yamasees), whose leader was called Tomochichi, when in 1732 a Ship from Britain called " Anne" arrived carrying 114 colonists. They greeted the newcomers with the first "Southern Hospitality". Among the people that came to settle the new colony was a man called General James Oglethorpe.
There was a letter from Benjamin Franklin that got my attention. He sent gifts to the new colony, of Rice that he felt would grow in the almost tropical climate! The Museum at the Wormsley Plantation House is small but worth the trip. And we had the added bonus of a re-enactment while we were there.
I felt at any moment she was going to speak.
There was a section honoring the many people that have died in service to our country and I took a moment to pay them homage......
To the wonderful people that started writing about it to make it come alive for us.
To the great food at Vic's On The River, which displays in part an amazing map, hand drawn by Union Soldiers detailing Shermans March from Tennessee to Georgia, and found hidden in a wall while renovating the building...
To the flagship "PeaceMaker" that is docked in the harbor for tours...
I think I could be comfortable in this! LOL..
Savannah oozes history and I am so thankful that I had a chance to visit and see it with my family. I could go on for hours and hours about all the things I saw, felt, or touched. The city impacted me. I felt like I was home amongst the ruins, the people gone on before, the Natives and the Colonials.
I learned a lesson about me a long time ago; Home is where I am..... Love to you all, Kimmee
