Our guests consistently tell us that the best walking tour in Savannah is: 40 Acres and a Mule
This is the story of Savannah and its significant role in promoting slavery throughout the South and it’s the story of the triumph over slavery through faith, culminating in a historic meeting in which the aspirations of four million African-Americans became distilled in a single phrase: “40 Acres and a Mule.”
