Kings Canyon National Park: General Grant By Aaron Johnson, Joel Anderson, 2021
- Kings Canyon National Park: General Grant
At 267 feet tall, the General Grant tree is the largest giant sequoia in the General Grant Grove section of Kings Canyon National Park in California and the second largest tree in the world. Once thought to be well over 2,000 years old, recent estimates suggest the General Grant tree is closer to 1,650 years old. President Eisenhower declared the General Grant Tree to be a National Shrine in 1956. It was dedicated "in memory of the men an women of the Armed Forces who have served and fought and dies to keep this Nation free..." It is the only example of a living shrine in the United States. Anderson Design Group has rendered this classic design in the tradition of the Golden Age of Poster Art. This retro-styled travel poster will look great as an art print, notecard, postcard, metal sign, canvas, or mini canvas.
