It is located at Bull and McDonough, almost in the historic district center. Its name comes from an American victory during the war of 1812 against England. The battle is also known as the "Lobsterbacks" due to the red colour of their tunics.
In this square Forest Gump, chocolate box in hand, is supposed to tell his story. The bench on which he was sitted has been removed and put in a musueum to be protected against the fans of the film.
The most important person of this square is certainly James Edward Oglethorpe (1696 - 1785). In 1733, he settled the first colony in Georgia, in Savannah, with the help of a tribe of Yamacraw indians, led by the chief Tomo-Chi-Chi. Ten years after, he went back to England to answer fiduciary charges brought by one of his men. He was acquitted but never returned to Savannah.
The Historic Savannah Theatre is just beside (222 Bull Street)
As the other squares of Savannah, this square is beautiful with its high oaks.
A perfect place to rest.
