Long Description:
Monument to Haitian participation with colonial troops in the British in the Siege of Savannah on Oct. 9, 1779. About 750 Haitian freemen fought alongside colonial troops. The monument's focal point is an eight-foot-tall bronze statue of Henry Christophe, the first king of Haiti, who participated in the battle as a 14-year-old drummer boy. Behind the statue are statues of other soldiers who followed him into battle. Six panels inscribed with the soldiers' names surround the memorial.
