|Somewhere near Fort Halifax, Pennsylvania|
A quick search for "trees near Fort Halifax" revealed that they are sycamore trees, but not just any prettily placed sycamore trees. No, these trees were planted in 1922 as part of a movement to remember the veterans of World War I. It was a nationwide movement, a "Road to Remembrance"program.
This particular strip of trees, dubbed Sycamore Allee, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. There are other similar memorials across the country. Another quick internet search revealed that.
So maybe one day in your travels you may come across a bunch of big old sycamore trees, and know you'll know a neat little piece of history.
It's also a chance to remember those who fought a war which, likely, you didn't live through, but which was significant enough to those who lived through it to be nicknamed, "The War to End All Wars."
