Jacksonville in Duval County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
Apalachicola Harbor Live Oak
Camp Milton Historic Preserve
The Apalachicola Harbor Live Oak stands at the site of an important Confederate port, blockaded by Union ships during the Civil War. The port, located southwest of Tallahassee, Florida, was a central shipping point for cotton, one of the South’s trade staples during the war. The port was cut off, however, by a successful Union blockade. As a result, the South lost a major source of foreign funding for its war effort. This tree grew from a seed taken from the Apalachicola Harbor Live Oak.
