About this Artefact by: Waterloo 200 Coordinator

Date added: 13 Mar 2015

For much of the early stages of the Battle of Waterloo, Wellington directed the operations of his army from a command post sited next to an elm tree that stood by the crossroads where the Ohain Road crossed the main Charleroi-Brussels highway. Because of its connections, this tree became a symbol of the battle itself, being commemorated in art and poetry.
