Sowing Freedom

On a crisp November morning, New York State’s Liberty Tree was planted during a special ceremony at Washington’s Headquarters in Newburgh. The young tulip poplar was grown from seeds produced by a 300-year-old Liberty Tree in Annapolis, Maryland. This tree — and others like it located throughout the colonies — was often used as a meeting place by rebels during the Revolutionary War. Each of the original 13 states received a sapling from the tree, which was recently destroyed in a hurricane.
