This giant sequoia (sequoiadendron giganteum) is the General Grant Tree, in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park. Discovered in 1862, it was named the General Grant in 1867.

In 1926, President Calvin Coolidge designated it the Nation's Christmas Tree and each year since park rangers have held a ceremony at the tree on the second Sunday of December.

In 1956, President Dwight Eisenhower designated it a National Shrine and a living memorial to those who have given their lives in wartime in the service of the United States of America.
