Savannah, Georgia, Looking East

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“View of Savannah, Ga., looking east, toward Fort Jackson. Savannah, the entry port of Georgia, is built on a sandy plain, forty feet above low-water mark. It is the centre of a very extensive system of railroads, which contribute greatly to its commercial importance. As a harbor for blockade runners it was not of much importance after Fort Pulaski fell into the Federal hands. Savannah was founded by General Oglethorpe in 1732. The river is navigable for steamers up to Augusta, 230 miles from its mouth, Savannah itself being 18 miles from the sea. Our view was taken from the cupola of the Exchange, looking east, with Fort Jackson on the left."— Frank Leslie, 1896
