SURRENDER TREE: The photograph represents the tree as it is at the present time, surrounded, by order of General Wood, with a triple wire fence or trocha, as a protection against relic hunters, whose depredations are visible on the roots and lower portions of the trunk. Surrender Tree is located about four miles out from Santiago, on the estate of Senor Morett, a wealthy cattle raiser, who lives at Ponce, Puerto Rico. The bodies of a number of American soldiers, buried under and near this tree, were removed to the United States after the close of the war.
