It’s been a while since my last adventure but I finally made it out today. I visited The Hermitage in Nashville, the home of President (General) Andrew Jackson. The plantation is situated on 1,100 acres and they actually have ALL of the acreage that Jackson had which is a rarity in this day and age of the Wal-Marts and shopping centers.

I also discovered that The Hermitage is the THIRD most visited presidential home in the United States just behind Monticello (Jefferson) and Mt. Vernon (Washington), respectively. Considering that Jackson has been regarded as both horrid and heroic by vastly different biographers, The Hermitage shines a little light on the persona of the General and his homestead.

This house is the third slice of Mecca for historians and presidential historians. The other two slices being Monticello and Mt. Vernon.
