American Historical Trees
Set of 18 engravings that link American history to famous trees associated with those events. Published during the Civil War, the illustrations and accompanying essay often look backward to events during the American Revolution. First among equals is the Genesee Valley's Big Tree, described as the "most ancient of these living links of the Present with the Past"
