I made yet another trip to Savannah, Georgia in the last days of winter in March 2018. Once again I was impressed by the women's history of this city of the Old South. I believe here are few places in the New World that can be compared to Savannah. In honor of Women's History Month 2018, I decided to re-post what I wrote here about Savannah in 2017.
I can’t even count the number of times I’ve visited Savannah, Georgia. When Matt and I lived in Atlanta, it was a short drive to the historic city on the coast, and we traveled there often. I have been on haunted pub crawls, historic trolley tours, and stumbled along River Street with a drink in my hand. When we were deciding where to move after Atlanta, Savannah and Asheville made that list.
So, when my friend said she wanted to go to Savannah for her 30th birthday, it didn’t take long for me to say “I’m there!”
I knew from my previous visits that Savannah’s history featured a lot of amazing women. What I didn’t realize until this particular trip was how many of those women were NotMoms. Here are a just a few.
