Last of the Trees at the Mansion
These are the Military Heroes Trees as you can tell by the lady in front of the stage that this area of Conservation Hall is very large. The last two of the above photos give you a better view of the trees at each end. Students from all grades across the state and nation created the ornaments in honor of Tennessee military legends and heroes who have served our state and nation. The two large red, white and blue trees celebrate the five military service branches of our Armed Forces, children of military families and the state militia that make up the Tennessee Military Department. The two middle size trees highlight the Medal of Honor in celebration of our highest military service award recipients. The Yellow Ribbon Trees celebrate Tennessee Military Veterans. Our State or National Flag flank each side of the trees.
Over in a corner by itself stood the Higher Education Tree. On this tree were displayed ornaments from many of our colleges, universities, technical schools, and community colleges throughout Tennessee, and it represents the importance of education for the future of our state.
The Kitty Justice is I have finished the tour of the trees but you will have to endure artwork from the Mansion in the coming post.
