The crazy winds of Hurricane Sandy uprooted a historic tree in New Haven, Connecticut, revealing a human skeleton that may date back to colonial times. Hartman says the tree was planted on the green in 1909 on the 100th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s birth. He says the remains likely belong to one of thousands of people buried there in Colonial times. The remains will be evaluated by the state medical examiner.
