City of Savannah to honor veterans on Wednesday

SAVANNAH (Nov. 10) – The City of Savannah will recognize Veterans Day with small, silent and socially distant ceremonies throughout the city at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 11.

Traffic will temporarily be stopped at 11 a.m. for a presentation of colors and moment of silence at Bay and Bull streets in front of City Hall, Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and Liberty Street, Victory Drive and Abercorn Street, Skidaway Road and LaRoche Avenue, and Montgomery Cross Road and Abercorn Street. 

Due to social distancing requirements, the city asks that spectators do not gather in groups to observe these events, but if they come across one, please pay their respects and stay at least six feet from others.

Veterans Day, originally known as Armistice Day, recognizes the end of fighting in World War I on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. Each year, the president of the United States lays a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery at 11 a.m. on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
