"HIDDEN HISTORY" River Street Tip by KEEPINGITREAL
River Street, Savannah: 21 reviews and 25 photos
I've never loved a city like Savannah. Savannah has so much to offer but it's history is not told correctly. Yes the cobblestones are nice the shops are lovely but what about those cobblestones and the shops, they have stories to tell... Who put those cobblestones on Riverstreet, what were those shops before they moved into the location. The answer is "Slaves".
I've taken Georgia History and I've learned about Ogelthorpe, Yamacraw, Habersham, Lazeratoo... But never learned about the true history of the slaves, the story about the African Slaves brought here to harvest rice, the slave trade from South Carolina, the auction block on Bay Street, the rail line on riverstreet where does it go?.... This is the information that needs to be told...
Everyone knows about the 1st African Church but do they really know about the floor boards, the benches and the start of the underground rail road.....
PLEASE LEARN THE HISTORY OF SAVANNAH.... AND NOT THE SMOKE IMAGE....
