Savannah Holidays 2014: Fort Pulaski Candle Lantern Tour, Tybee Christmas Tree Lighting & Parade,

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

Fort Pulaski Night Evening Christmas Candle Lantern Tour HolidayOn December 19-20, Fort Pulaski National Monument will commemorate the Confederate Nog party of 1861 with the night-time Fort Pulaski Candle Lantern Tour.

Hot cider, cookies, caroling and weapons firings will allow guests to re-live the festive occasion of 1861.

Fort Pulaski commemorates the Confederate Nog party of 1861 each year during the holiday season. The long-lived Savannah tradition provides night-time tours of the historic fort by candlelight and oil lamps.

The original party, held at Christmas time in 1861, gave the Confederate garrison at Fort Pulaski a respite from the tension of impending battle. The fort casemates, armed with cannons, were decorated with holiday garlands. As one soldier commented, tables groaned under the weight of fine delicacies sent down from the city. With song and good cheer, the men celebrated a light-hearted moment as the dark clouds of war gathered over Savannah.

Guests will have the unique experience of a guided tour for the fort by moonlight. Hot cider and cookies, music, caroling and night-time weapons firings will allow guests to re-live the festive occasion.

Advance reservations are required for this year’s event. The fort begins taking reservations in November. Reservations can be made in person or by phone at 912-786-5787, extension 109. The cost of the program is $5 per adult. Children 15 and under are free, but reservations must also be made for children. For more information, please visit www.nps.gov/fopu or call (912) 786-5787.

Fort McAllister 150th Anniversary Winter Muster End of Sherman's March to the Sea

150th Winter Muster
Sat. Dec 13, 2014 9 AM-4 PM

Civil War History Event: Come join Fort McAllister in Richmond Hill on the actual date — 150 years since General Sherman ordered his troops to take Ft. McAllister. Watch as they reenact this significant moment in our country’s history. Help make this 150th Winter Muster the greatest one yet. The museum and staging area will be closed to the public at 4PM and will reopen for the battle at 5 PM. 912-727-2339.

This 150th Anniversary of Sherman’s ‘March to the Sea’ will bring 300 Re-enactors to Fort McAllister exactly 150 years after Gen. William T. Sherman ended his “March to the Sea” by overtaking the fort.

Additional public events planned for December 11 and 12 as well.
The three-day commemoration begins Thursday, December 11 as Union soldiers set up camp at the Richmond Hill Museum and answer visitors’ questions about the upcoming battle.
On Friday, soldiers will march from the intersection of Highway 144 and Fort McAllister Road to the park, setting up camp when they arrive.
By 9 a.m. on Saturday, the fort will be filled with Confederate soldiers as they prepare for the battle they know is coming. Throughout the day, visitors can watch skirmishes between Union and Confederate troop as they fire muskets and cannons. Guests can also walk among the earthworks and tour a Civil War museum.
Then at 5 p.m., the same time that the actual battle occurred 150 years ago, visitors can watch Union forces breach the fort and take Confederates as prisoners.
When Union troops took control of Fort McAllister in 1864, they marked the end of Gen. Sherman’s “March to the Sea” and enabled him to present Savannah as a Christmas gift to President Lincoln.

“Fort McAllister is a very significant part of Georgia’s history, and we’re especially pleased that our annual Winter Muster falls on the exact date of the original battle” said Park Manager Jason Carter. “This event is expected bring in a large number of visitors to the Richmond Hill and Savannah areas, so it’s good for tourism. They will be dining and shopping at local businesses and making a positive impact on our community.”

The Journey, which draws tens of thousands from across the Southeast, is all-new this December. Step back centuries in time to experience life the night Jesus was born. See prophecies foretold. Enter the gates of ancient Bethlehem. Follow the shepherds to find a baby lying in a manger. Let the wonder of the season come to life in that star-lit stable.

Hundreds of costumed volunteers bring to life this outdoor production that Savannah Christian Church has hosted since 1998. In 2013 The Journey is all-new, completely re-imagined. Volunteers are building a new walled town of Bethlehem. Streets will be lined with a bakery, cloth and jewelry shops, vegetable and spice stands, an inn, tannery and blacksmith shops. Live animals – camels at the tent of the Wise Men, lions at Herod’s place, and sheep, goats, geese and more outside of Bethlehem – will further enliven the experience.

Savannah Christian Church has rebuilt to create an even more authentic experience – as if you stepped back in time to an ancient Middle Eastern town. They’ve also made room for even more visitors.
