What makes this tour special

Born in the wild frontier lands of South Carolina on March 15, 1767, to impoverished Irish immigrant parents, no one could predict Andrew Jackson’s meteoric rise to military and political fame – and eventually the presidency in 1828. Popular with some and polarizing for many, learn all about the life and times of ‘Old Hickory’ in his hometown of Nashville. On your private walking tour, you will: 

Discover the life and times of Andrew Jackson, seventh President of the United States, and the first to come from an impoverished background. He served in both houses and changed the face of democracy by extending the right to vote. He paid off America’s public debt for the first time in its history. He was known as the first true ‘people’s president’ to win the popular vote. His popularity was not universal, however, and he survived an assassination attempt in 1835 – by beating his would-be assassin with his walking cane. 

Andrew Jackson became wealthy on the back of slavery, owning up to 150 slaves on his 1000 acre plantation, the Hermitage, and actively opposed abolitionists. It was Jackson's policies that led to the Indian Removal Act of 1830, the displacement and massacre of thousands of Native Americans on what became known as the Trail of Tears, along which over 15000 members of the Cherokee were forced to march, and over 4000 died. The Indian Removal is a brutal legacy that would outlive him for generations to come. 

Jackson left office in 1836, and retired to the Hermitage where he died nine years later of heart failure. His parrot, Poll, had to be removed from the funeral for cursing at the mourners.
