This is a must do if you travel to Savannah area. They treat you as if your are there to fight. Taught many wonderful skills and saw a cannon really fire.

Cannon firing presentations include a history of the site and its significance. When kids visit, we try to make our programming as interactive as possible, including mock drill and marching.
