Green-Meldrim House
Built by a wealthy merchant, the Green-Meldrim House was the most elaborate building in Savannah at the time of the Civil War and served as Union Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman’s headquarters after his famous March to the Sea. He was here when he sent a telegram to President Lincoln offering the city of Savannah as a Christmas present and when he signed Special Field Orders No. 15, the decree behind “40 acres and a mule.”

Fort McHenry
During the War of 1812, Fort McHenry was attacked by British bombs for 25 hours straight during the Battle of Baltimore. Because of careful planning before the battle, the fort and city were able to keep the enemy at bay and withstand the attack until the British Navy was forced to retreat. While a temporary prisoner of the British on a ship in the Chesapeake Bay, Francis Scott Key was inspired by the 30- by 42-foot American flag that he could see flying over the fort. He wrote the lyrics to The Star-Spangled Banner, which would become the US national anthem 117 years later.
