What's with the Haunted Reputation of Savannah, GA?
Savannah is a unique destination. It embodies traditional Southern hospitality and charm, but also revels in its rough-and-tumble—and sometimes eerie—past. Savannah was a battleground during the American Revolution; was captured by Sherman during the Civil War; and has weathered hurricanes, fires, and two devastating outbreaks of yellow fever. Established on the Savannah River, the city had an early population of colonists, slaves, voodooists, sailors, traders, and pirates with unique social and religious beliefs. These elements combined make a fitting backdrop for ghost tales and unexplained phenomenon.
