Georgia's First Fouth

Saturday, Aug 8, 2020 (10 AM to 4 PM)

Did you know that the Declaration of Independence did not make its way to Savannah until August? Hear the reading of the Declaration of Independence as it was read in 1776. Participate in the debate to declare independence or to remain loyal to the king. See musket firings and more.

The reading of the Declaration and a debate over whether to declare independence will precede a militia enlistment and parade to the Colonial Life Area to remove the British flag and the burning of a King George Effigy to celebrate independence from the Crown. Activities repeat at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.
