Savannah is the government seat of Chatham County and has been known as the oldest city in the state of Georgia. There is so much history in the city that American history will not be complete without mentioning Savannah. With its mild climate, it has offered a perfect condition to growing cotton fields and has become a significant and primary commodity after the American Revolution. The Port has served and helped the European immigrants to achieve wealth and prosperity through the plantation system and its shipment going through the Port. The city's major technological innovation was when it built the first steamship that crossed the ocean. Today, Savannah hosts headquarters of technology-related businesses. Savannah is a charming Southern escape wherein trendy boutiques, period architecture, the arts, and ghost stories are all under a veil.
