A great place for kids to see and feel the history of the place

It is located next to the children museum ant it is reconstructed in a way that makes it suitable for kids. They love running between the fortifications and climb the walls.

Nice enough restoration and information plaque describing a very bloody battle with heavy American and French losses. Would be best seen with reenactors present.

Nice Restored British fort and stone markers for the revolutionary battle of Savannah. The restored fort and field are not large, best to pair with the revolutionary reenactor tour guide. Don't miss the stone markers with history of various countries and participants. Best for history lovers.

Very interactive and educational experience learning about the revolutionary war battle of Savannah. The re-enactor was fantastic. Very knowledgeable; Played the battle drums, taught us how to march, fired the musket, all in period costume. It was on 9/11 and he was tuned into the tie between the battle for freedom in 1779 and the ongoing battles today. Great experience.... More

This place is shown on all tourist maps and it seems to be a reasonable place to visit, but, frankly, in Savannah there are plenty of authentic places to visit. This area is recently developed and feels artificial.

Great information told by our own "South Carolina militia man." He was full of knowledge and the reenactment of the battle scene was so much fun! Very interactive and great for the littles :)

A lot to learn about history and reenact the battle for Savannah is priceless experience. The tour guide John is so knowlegable and entertaining, probably the best guide we ever had! We would go again just to see him.

We happened upon the redoubts at battlefield park on ML King Drive by accident but found them to be quite fascinating. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

Up until a few short years ago, the property that is now "Battlefield Park" was a vacant lot, having been used as a landfill by the railroad that had owned it for more than 100 years. Nothing you see here today is authentic; it is a total recreation of the redoubt, and an unexceptional one at that. True, it is... More
