Clip 2 Fort Vancouver archaeologist Dr. Robert Cromwell (0:09 – 0:16):

“Right now, this tree is the last above-ground remnant of Hudson’s Bay Company operations here at Fort Vancouver.”

Clip 3 Cromwell continues (0:17 – 0:52):

“And this was the quartermaster’s depot. So a whole string of the who’s who of the 19th century U.S. Army actually came here. So less than 100 feet away from here, Ulysses S. Grant was residing. He had to have seen this tree on his daily walk down to the wharf to check in on the quartermaster’s stores. He probably walked right by it. In fact, the main road connecting Vancouver Barracks to the wharf was basically just on the east side of this tree. And to me, it’s just amazing looking at the history of development in this area that this tree has survived.”

Clip 4: Instrumental bluegrass music continues and ends, (0:53 – 1:01)
