Today Savannah is a gentle, faded old city of shadowy, cobbled streets, handsome but sometimes decayed houses, a noble town plan of verdant squares and the nostalgic atmosphere of lost greatness. The colonial capital of Georgia, Savannah became one of the famous ports of the Cotton Kingdom during the nineteenth century. This richly illustrated book revisits Savannah’s glory days by means of prints, drawings, old and new photographs (some never before published) and a thoughtful but often amusing text. This is the fifth edition of a classic history that remains unrivaled by any other publication.
