When the first edition of Anchored Yesterdays was published in 1923, Savannah had yet to become one of the South's most picturesque and popular tourist sites. This new edition replicates the substance and charm of the privately printed original. Assembled here, as timeless as the town they describe, are many memorable places, people, and events from Savannah's first hundred years. Beginning with the story of Savannah's founding as the first city in "The Colony of Georgia in America," the authors lead us through ten "Watches," detailing accounts that reflect Savannah's importance as a seaport. Elfrida De Renne Barrow and Laura Palmer Bell also describe numerous landmark events in the history of Savannah and the Georgia coast, from the Battle of Bloody Marsh to the first nationally celebrated Thanksgiving Day. Offering year-by-year accounts that range from details of political assemblies and the development of Savannah's newspapers to news of smallpox epidemics and the cotton trade, Anchored Yesterdays is a unique record of Savannah's early history and culture.
