One Tree. For Every Fallen Soldier
During this country's most defining moment, 620,000 soldiers died, many of whom fought on the battlefields within the JTHG National Heritage Area. As a living commemoration for their individual and combined sacrifices, the Living Legacy project will plant one tree for each citizen who sacrificed their life. The Living Legacy Project will create a unified color palette that reminds visitors that they are, indeed, on hallowed ground. Upon completion, this initiative will create the first 180 mile landscaped allee in the world and the only allee dedicated to honoring the most defining moment in American history.
