Kennesaw Mountain White Oak
Camp Milton Historic Preserve
The Kennesaw Mountain White Oak stands in a 2,883-acre national park northwest of Atlanta, Georgia. Today, the park commemorates one of the few of the Civil War victories for the Confederate Army during Union General William T. Sherman’s bloody March to the Sea. Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston turned back Sherman’s advance on June 27, 1864, at Kennesaw Mountain. But the victory was short-lived. By the end of 1864, Sherman had burned much of Atlanta and had completed his March to the Sea. This tree was grown from a seed handpicked from the Kennesaw Mountain White Oak, which stands atop Kennesaw Mountain.
