Color postcard with a divided back and no border, postally unused. Thunderbolt is just east of downtown Savannah. Oglethorpe felt the area was one of military importance. The about the name Thunderbolt was that a rock was shattered by a "thunderbolt" and caused a spring to gush from the ground on the site. Fortifications were built on the bluff and the area was used in the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. In 1875, the Thunderbolt Casino was built on the river front. It became a popular recreational area and was used often for groups and events. The casino burned in 1930 and the Thunderbolt Marina was built on the site.
