<P>The hatless drummer boy represents Henri Christophe, the future king of Haiti, who was just 12 when he served in Savannah.</P>
<P>The four bronze soldiers atop the monument's granite base represent the service and sacrifice of the Chasseurs Volontaires de Saint-Domingue, the 500-man Haitian unit that fought in the Oct. 9, 1779, battle that decided the Siege of Savannah. </P>
