Unique WW II memorial for the local veterans from the war. Sits right on the river in front of the Grand Bohemian hotel.

This is a uniquely designed memorial for the local WWII veterans, so while you're walking on River Street go ahead and check it out. A little history for you and the kids. Nice local touch to honor those who gave their all for American freedom!

The official name of Savannah's World War II memorial is "A World Apart", not Cracked Earth. The monument overlooks the Savannah River, which was significant in the WWII Allied effort. Liberty ships were built in shipyards here, and supplies were transported along this route. The...More
