The annual Jasper Green Ceremony will be held Friday in Savannah to honor and remember a Revolutionary War hero.

Hundreds of people will gather in Madison Square Friday at 4:30 p.m. for the special memorial. It's the only St. Patrick's Day ceremony dedicated solely to the military. 

The ceremony honors all servicemen and women, with special recognition for those of Irish descent.
