The Battlefield Memorial March

October 9 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am

The Battlefield Memorial March

The 2019 Battlefield Memorial March, hosted by Coastal Heritage Society, will honor the 1779 Battle of Savannah, one of the most significant conflicts during Savannah’s Revolutionary War history and one of the war’s pivotal battles.

The Battlefield Memorial March event will lead guests through the footsteps of soldiers on that historic day in 1779 in recognition of the 240th anniversary.

All march participants should meet in the parking lot of the Savannah History Museum at 6:45am, and the march will begin promptly at 7:00am. Following the march, a wreath laying ceremony will take place in Battlefield Park.

Two stones have been commissioned by the Savannah chapter of the General K. Pulaski Committee to honor Captain Federick Paschke and Polish-Lithuanian nobleman Feliks Miklaszewicz. Additional stones will also be dedicated to John McCutchen and Thomas Snelson, two participants in the Siege of Savannah, and these honorary markers will be placed by their descendants and unveiled the day of the event.

This event is free and open to the public.

Battlefield Memorial March is supported by a grant from Georgia Humanities as part of Coastal Heritage Society’s Revolutionary Perspectives Lecture Series.
