In Response To: "Thanks" from Old Dog ()
A correction and note:
Sgt.Chris Jasper is actually Sgt.William Jasper and St. or Saint Dominque is often refered to as San Dominque. Historians and interpretors in Savannah, refer to the "Chasseurs" as being from San Dominque. There were no monuments to the Chasseurs de San Domminque when I left CHS in '98 and departed Savannah in 2001. How ever the Chasseurs would be represented by CHS in the local parades, ie; St. Patricks Day by a member from CHS or one of the Beach HS students who were members of the Military Heritage Brigade. A large Diorama which represents the siege and consist of several hundred toy soldiers, 1/35 scale, sits in the middle of the Savannah History museum. The Chasseurs are represented in this display and there was a replica uniform along with display in the museum as well. The role of the Chasseurs in the Seige of Savannah is a major portion of the interpretation of the content of the history of Battlefield Park and the historical artifact's within the Savannah History museum, and is well represented by the Coastal Heritage Society.
