Civil War Savannah

 Map at Fort Pulaski showing Venus Point on Savannah River, Venus Point area today, street to dock in Savannah

In Savannah we visited the Georgia Historical Society and found the likely location of the old prison camp for Union POW's (Forsythe Park), found the likely dock area in Savannah, and the prisoner exchange area on the Savannah River (Venus Point).  I was pleased that my accounts in Hiram's Honor matched up well with what we saw of the historical record in Savannah.
