Painting completed in: 2011

This Magnificent Post Oak is in Clarksville, Texas and is located at the northwest corner of the Old Clarksville Cemetery. This Tree was first used as a Hanging Tree in 1837 when a man named Page and three others were hanged for the Murder of Captain Charles Burham and Levi Davis. This tree was used as the Hanging Tree for many years until more civilized methods were employed.
