Savannah’s 150th Civil War, Historic Savannah

Historic Savannah celebrates Savannah's 150th Civil War commemoration with Riverboat Cruises on the River Street Riverboat as it travels along the path of the Civil War soldiers toward Old Fort Jackson.

The Civil War Experience trips will be on Friday August 5, Friday September 2 and Friday October 7, 2011.  Boarding begins at 6:00pm with a sail time of 7:00 - 10:00pm each night.

As guests board they will be welcomed by uniformed Civil War Union and Confederate soldiers while a Dixieland Jazz band plays.  Once on board, guests will be able to absorb the beautiful and stunning views of historic Savannah, listen to period music and dine on a savory and authentic southern dinner buffet.

Upon arrival to Old Fort Jackson, guests will be greeted by the fort’s honor guard and escorted inside the fort.  As they cross the drawbridge, the guests will enter the year 1861; watching soldiers prepare the fort and practice their marching and artillery drills.

Guests will have the opportunity to interact with the soldiers of Old Fort Jackson while learning what daily fortification life was like.  Live period music will fill the air of the fort while leading up to the climax of the evening, a live firing of one of the largest and oldest original artillery pieces in the country!

On the return voyage back to Savannah aboard the River Street Riverboat, guests will enjoy sweet Savannah treats and night lights of Savannah itself.
