While in Savannah, check out the home of Confederate General Hugh Mercer.  His grandson Johhny Mercer was the famous song writer. The house is featured in the movie "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" directed by Clint Eastwood and based on a true murder case that took place in that house. Jude Law plays the murder victim. Johnny Mercer's song "Skylark" is the theme song of the movie.

In Charleston, if you are so inclined, the very place where you pick up the boat to Fort Sumter also has an amazing display of US Navy ships including an aircraft carrier you can tour, a diesel submarine and a replica of a Viet Nam army outpost.
