A Sketch of Savannah. Savannah is the capital of Chatham county, and is the largest city in the State of Georgia. It was founded by General Oglethorpe in 1732, the year of George Washington's birth, and is situated on the right bank of the Savannah river, eighteen miles from its mouth, ninety miles southwest of Charleston, one hundred and eighty-eight miles southeast of Milledgeville, and one hundred and thirty-two miles from Augusta. The site of the city is a sandy plain, elevated about forty feet above low-water mark. It is regularly laid out with wide, sandy and unpaved streets, which, however, are well protected from the rays of the summer's sun with handsome shade trees. At every other corner there is a public square, usually circular or oval in shape, thickly spread with handsome shade trees. The number of these squares is twenty-four. Broad and Bay streets, the most prominent thoroughfares, have grassy promenades in the middle, with carriage-ways on each side.
