Cannonballs Found, Destroyed At Savannah Construction Site

Work has resumed at a downtown Savannah construction site after two cannonballs were found and detonated there this week. An Explosive Ordnance Disposal team from Ft.

"Because we are familiar with the Civil War, we're familiar with those kinds of projectiles," Groce said. "We forget about the rich history, the rich military history, that we have here in Savannah and across the South that goes way back before the Civil War." Developers do not have to dig for historical artifacts before building in Savannah. But local officials said they are working on an ordinance that would give builders incentives to do more archaeological exploration before they start construction.
