This square was named to honor General Nathanial Greene, second in command to George Washington in the American Revolution. He is memorialised with an obelisk in Johnson square.
It was the first square we discovered at our arrival in Savannah. It was like I imagined the Savannah squares : marvellous and sahdy.
The Second African Baptist Church, founded in 1802 by Henry Cunningham, is on the West side of the square. At this church, Sherman made his famous "Forty Acres and a Mule" promise to the newly freed slaves. Its current moto is : "A powerful people, doing little things to make a big difference".
