it had seen the fall of a civilization and the birth of a nation. Native
Americans, believed to be the Wiccomisses, lived and hunted in the area. The
Choptank Trail, which ran down the east side of the Chesapeake Bay, traversing
the land from the head of one river to the next, was near the oak. This
