The Boyington Oak Festival is an annual event hosted by the Boyington Oak Society and the Historic Mobile Preservation Society. This year the event will be held May 4 & 5  at the Historic Oakleigh House located in Midtown Mobile. Featured in the event is the play “The Truth is in the Tree,” which tells the true story of Charles Boyington. Journeyman printer, poet, and musician, Charles Boyington, was hanged for the murder of his critically ill best friend. As he predicted would happen to prove his innocence, an oak tree grew from his gravesite in Mobile, Alabama. It still stands almost 200 years later. Tickets to the event are $55 and include the play, a tour of Historic Oakleigh, a trolly tour titled “Footsteps of Boyington,” and a signed copy of Boyington Oak: A Grave Injustice by Mary S. Palmer.
