      About this Savannah tour

      This tour will take you through beautiful Savannah, where you will experience southern charm as well as the painful history of African-American slaves. The Indigo Journey Walking Tour of the Antebellum Period will kick off with your guide narrating the stories about the life of African Americans before Emancipation in 1865.

      Walk on the same trail that the slaves walked in the second port of passage and see the structures that were once used as slave marts. The slave trade history comes alive on this tour where you will learn about some of the slave leaders as well as well-off financiers of the trade. You will also see some of the monuments left behind by those supporting the trade.

      More historical proof awaits you at the squats that were once used to discipline and sell the slaves. You will also see the Haitian Monument and learn how it came about. Other must-see attractions include barracoons, the first African Baptist Church and other African-American monuments.

      Savannah: The President’s Gift

      Savannah’s history is mainly defined by slavery and the struggle of African Americans before Emancipation. However, unlike you may expect, Savannah has always been a beauty to behold.  At the height of the Civil War, General Sherman marched through the town and was greatly impressed with its beauty. Being the loyal general he was, he offered Savannah to President Lincoln as a Christmas present. He passed the present through a telegram message! This is one of the reasons why Savannah was not completely destroyed during the war, unlike many towns in the South.
