I got extremely lucky with being in the right place at the right time with this picture. It rained all day long and just before the sun went down for the day, it peaked out from behind the clouds and lit the scene nicely. I had just walked out of the shop right there by The Hall of Presidents and this is what I saw.
The plaque under the tree reads:
“Under the roughs of the original Liberty Tree in Boston in 1765, patriots, calling themselves “The Sons of Liberty,” gathered to protest the imposition of the Stamp Act. In the years that followed, almost every American town had a Liberty Tree – a living symbol of the American freedom of speech and assembly. Our Liberty Tree is a Southern Live Oak, Quercus Virginiana, more than 100 years old.”
