Savannah was founded in 1733 by Georgia founder James Oglethorpe. It was the first settlement in Georgia and the southernmost port in the 13 colonies. It was originally founded as a haven for European Jews and non-European immigrants and was a center for the cultivation of silk, cotton, and indigo. Savannah was occupied in both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, but was spared destruction during Sherman’s March to the Sea in 1864.

Today, Savannah is the fifth largest city in Georgia and is home to America’s most valuable collection of 18th and 19th century architecture. The city draws millions of visitors every year and its downtown area is the largest national historic landmark district in America.
