Savannah Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Savannah

Sherman's march to Savannah Georgia in the winter of 1864 is all but devastating, but certain people can bring out the best in a bad situation. The year is 1864 and General Sherman's army is on his grand campaign “The March to the Sea”, where his army is living off the land and destroying everything in it's path. Savannah is the jewel of the South and the city is all but defenseless since the Battle of Atlanta nearly decimated the remanding Confederate forces. All that is left in Savannah are women and children left to the mercy of the Union Army.

The entire fate of the city will fall into the hands of some unlikely people such as widows, slaves and poor people. These people will unite in a bond that may just spare the city of Savannah from being burned to the ground. The book focuses on how times of sorrows can lead to the inexplicit joy.
Best part of story, including ending: Shows that their is hope even during times of great suffering.

Best scene in story: Christmas day in Savannah Georgia in 1864.

Opinion about the main character: No real main characters, but a mix of many which makes the story very interesting and inspiring.
