Gettysburg's General Gibbon's Witness Tree

From the May 27, 2008, Gettysburg Daily.

This might be the only remaining "witness tree" along the center of the Union line on Cemetery Ridge.

Legend has it that Union Brigadier General John Gibbon was wounded near it during Pickett's Charge on July 3, 1863.

Sadly, it doesn't appear to have many years left to live.
