Trail Tree near New Liberty

Our friend and colleague, David Pittman invited us over to his place this weekend to document a bent tree on his property near New Liberty. This area is in the corridor of the original Military Road traveled by the Benge Detachment on the Trail of Tears. We are told that there are several more trees on an adjacent property that are as large or larger than this example. The grindstone was found in the area as well along with other artifacts. We hope to get to document the other trees once all hunting seasons are over with. Note the tri-trunk tree next to the bent tree which has three knots and the three knots which are equidistant along the hip of the bent tree.
