Nuclear Ship Savannah
The N.S. Savannah, the world's first nuclear-powered cargo-passenger ship, is the namesake of the famous SS SAVANNA, the first steamship to cross the Atlantic ocean, in 1819.  Home port of the 22,000 ton vessel, is Savannah, Georgia.  She is 595 1/2 feet long, has a normal cruising speed of 20 knots, carries 60 passengers, a crew of 110 and about 10,000 tons of dry cargo and cost some $47,000,000.  The N.S. SAVANNAH, a joint project of the Atomic Energy Commission and the Maritime Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce, in her voyages to world ports symbolizes America's peaceful use of the mighty atom.

It was here that General William T. Sherman established his personal headquarters during the Union Army's occupation of Savannah, Georgia, 1864-1865.  This building, facing Madison Square, is now the Parish House of St. John's Episcopal Church, located next door.  The church chimes were saved from Federal confiscation during the Civil War as a result of personal intervention of General Sherman, who requested President Abraham Lincoln to spare them.
