Goliad Hanging Tree

Saves: 25
Check-ins: 7
The Goliad Hanging Tree is a macabre symbol of how justice was meted out in 19th century Texas - swiftly, efficiently, and oftentimes without mercy or due process. The chunky and plentiful branches made this tree of death a perfect apparatus to snap the necks of convicted criminals. If you can forget its sordid history, sitting with a friend under its boughs might actually be a pleasant experience.
