This monument is in Franklin Square, a memorial to the Haitian Volunteer Army. The Haitians played a role in the US Revolution, helping capture Savannah from the British in 1779. Soon after, they returned home and staged a revolution of their own. In 1804, Haiti became the first independent republic in Latin America, and the first black-led nation in the world.
We were enjoying our homemade butter pecan ice cream. Yummm! This was during an uncommonly hot week in January. We're wishing for that weather now!
Upon her death in 1985, she left the property to the Society of the Cincinnati in the state of Georgia. This is an organization of gentlemen who are direct descendants of George Washington’s officers during the Revolution. Alida’s brother and father were Society members.
Crystal Beer Parlor has become one of our favourite spots. It is about a block from our house and the food is excellent. I have become addicted to the hot dogs. The last time we were there, the server said the reason they are so good is that they throw them in the deep fryer. Well alrighty then...this may explain why my pants are a little tighter!
