Robert E. Lee Sycamore
Camp Milton Historic Preserve
The Robert E. Lee Sycamore grows at the immense plantation where the famous Confederate general was born. The thickly wooden acres of Stratford Hall were home to four generations of Lees, including Richard Henry Lee and Francis “Lightfoot” Lee, the only brothers to sign the Declaration of Independence. Robert E. Lee graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point. He became commander-in-chief of all Confederate armies during the Civil War in 1865. This tree grew from a seed handpicked from Robert E. Lee Sycamore.
