Siege of Savannah Reenactment Scheduled

Two hundred twenty-five years ago, the bloodiest hour of the American Revolution took place, the Siege of Savannah. To commemorate this famous battle, a special weekend is in the works. A reenactment is set for the second weekend in October. Thousands are expected to take part in this living history lesson.

"Close to 1,000 Revolutionary War reenactors depicting British, French, Hessian, Hatian, will recreate this event at property near the airport," said event coordinator Mike Vaquer.

The reenactment will take place on October 9 and 10.
