    Enrich the Roots of Liberty

    In the years leading up to the American Revolution, a mature elm tree near the Boston Common became a gathering place for patriots, where they discussed American ideas of liberty and planned resistance to British tyranny. They called the elm the Liberty Tree. Soon, Liberty Trees were designated in towns throughout the colonies as powerful symbols and gathering places.
