What you can expect

Take a step back in time and learn about the Civil War's presence in Savannah, the final destination of Sherman's famous “March to the Sea.” Stroll through the Historic District and see both sides' perspectives on the war, including Georgia's secession and the devastating aftermath on the city.

From Warren Square, go back to Civil War era Savannah and learn how the city was affected during America's war between the states. Your knowledgeable guide illustrates the reasons and rationales for the war and the political ramifications that lasted more than a century after fighting stopped.

See the houses of prominent Southern generals such as William Hardee, James Bartow, and Joseph E. Johnston. Pass by General Sherman's headquarters and listen as your guide explains the famous Field Order No. 15, decreed in Savannah, promising 40 acres (16 ha) of good land and a mule to every freed slave in the area.

Along the way, hear stories of hardship between Savannah's residents and stories of brother opposing brother. When the tour concludes, you'll fully understand Sherman's “Christmas gift” to President Lincoln in December 1864.
