I read the comment -- and it is the LEAST convincing point anyone could make. This so-called "border that touches Chatham" is a limited-access road cutting through uninhabited piney woods. Lots of deer and raccoons around, but it's about as important to the Savannah-Chatham economy as a wildlife refuge. The functional and administrative part of Ft. Stewart lies miles to the south of that "border", and the fort's gate is just outside the city limits of Hinesville. Just as Warner Robins AFB is "at Warner Robins" and not "at Macon", Ft. Stewart is "at Hinesville" and not "at Savannah". I'm not disputing some important though indirect ties between Savannah and Stewart (a CSA is a CSA is a CSA), but Savannah cannot be put in the same wagon as true southern military towns having a symbiotic relationship with their adjacent military base -- which some folks on this thread either claim or infer.

I also stated that there is an access road just within Bryan County. Not very far at all.

Once again, you're making it sound like Stewart is way off in Metter or something. It's in Savannah's backyard and obviously a major contributor to it's economy.

I don't understand how you can't see that.
