The Abraham Lincoln Burial Witness Tree

This is the stump of the bur oak ( Quercus macrocarpa ) Witness Tree – this tree was determined by ring count to have been a small sapling that witnessed Lincoln’s funeral. Unfortunately, the tree was not visible in photographs of Lincoln’s funeral and could be dated only by counting tree rings after it died from a lightning strike and was removed. A replacement bur oak sapling can be seen nearby.    This stump is the remains of the tree that witnessed President Lincoln's burial in 1865.  It was approximately 15 years old at that time.  It was stuck by lightening, and had to be cut down.  The stump was carefully preserved and finished at Oak Ridge Cemetery for visitors to physically touch the stump to connect themselves to Abraham Lincoln. Sections of the tree were salvaged and pieces are offered to collectors to proudly display their piece of history as appropriate.
