Jacksonville in Duval County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
Shiloh Silver Maple
Camp Milton Historic Preserve
In Tennessee during the spring of 1862, the tranquility of the small log church called Shiloh was shattered by the sounds of battle. Cannons rumbled, rifle-shots cracked the air , and peach blossoms from nearby orchards “floated down on the firing line, like a gentle pink rain,” as Union troops won this great, bloody battle of the Civil War. Today, the Shiloh Silver Maple, stands in a place of peace and serenity. This tree grew from a seed handpicked from the Shiloh Silver Maple.
