A boy went to war in 1914 and left his bike chained to a small tree. He never
made it home, and his family left the bike by the tree in his memory. This is
that tree today. It's on Vashon Island, in Puget Sound, Washington State.
It is real, not photoshopped. It is locally famous. Berkeley Breathed wove
a story around this very bicycle in his delightful illustrated book
"Red Ranger Came Calling".
