Far away from Virginia and the actions of George Washington's army,
Georgia also had Patriot versus British actions leading to the
revolution victory and the establishment of the United States of America.
The Georgia Sons of the American Revolution (GASAR) has identified 8
battle sites in Georgia which are described in the
Georgia Major Battles referenced
in Land Battle Sites above.
The web site is dedicated to providing detailed data on all battle
sites that occurred in Coastal Georgia (the Low Country) which include:
Savannah #6(Chatham County),
Sunbury/ Fort Morris #7(Liberty
Frederica/ St. Simons Island #8
(Glynn County) and the
Florida Expeditions (actions
originating in Coastal GA).
Although Steven Rauch of Fort
Gordon Army Military Base has identified over 150 events which occurred in
Georgia during the American Revolution, the Georgia Society Sons of the
American Revolution focuses on primarily 8 major battle sites and have
produced 8 brochures concerning these eight “campaigns”. The Augusta
battle site was really more than one battle and so was Savannah and
Sunbury. In all, most all of the battles originated as an outcome of the
“Southern Strategy” created by the British beginning in 1778.
