About "Savannah Under Fire"

What you need to know about us:

"Savannah Under Fire" started as an archaeological project to find and save Revolutionary War sites in Savannah, GA. Savannah, the site of one of the bloodiest battles of the American Revolution, is renowned for its historic preservation. We hoped this project would promote archaeological preservation as well. The work was sponsored by the National Park Service American Battlefield Protection Project. Our first grant spanned 2007-2008, and the second 2010-2011. "Savannah Under Fire" was also sponsored by Coastal Heritage Society, a non-profit organization based in Savannah that operates the Savannah History Museum, the Roundhouse Railroad Museum, Battlefield Park, and Old Fort Jackson.

Today, this blog is run by ArchaeoLaura who continues to work in museums and archaeology in Savannah.
