Yesterday we had another fantastic day in Savannah. Our first stop was the Savannah History Museum. At the museum a multimedia exposition and movie chronicles the city's history. On display in the museum is the bench used by Forest Gump in the movie of the same name, a cotton gin ( Eli Whitney did not invent the first cotton gin, just refined it), an 1890 locomotive, and one of the Oscars awarded to Savannah native and composer Johnny Mercer. He composed the songs " Days of Wine and Roses" as well as "Moon River". In the early evening hours we happened to pass by his statue in City Garden area of Savannah.
