  • Emmet Park in Savannah Ga

Emmet Park is located just above Morrell Park on Bay Street. Named after Irish orator and patriot Robert Emmet, it covers a fair amount of the side of the street and is home to the Chatham Artillery Monument, honoring the military unit formed in 1786; the Celtic Cross Monument, honoring all savannah citizens of Irish descent; the Vietnam War Monument; and the Salzburger Monument of Reconciliation, dedicated to the Georgia Salzburger Society in 1994, honoring the Lutheran Protestants who fought for their religious freedom in Georgia.
