    Jackson was elected to full membership of the Hibernian Society for the Relief of Emigrants from Ireland in March of 1819. He received this membership certificate in July that same year. The artwork was designed by John James Barralet and features symbols and imagery of Ireland, the United States, Philadelphia, prosperity in agriculture and commerce, and support for those seeking refuge. This certificate is on display in Jackson’s Library in the Hermitage Mansion.
    Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Did you know Andrew Jackson was the first American President to have Irish ancestry? While Jackson was born in the Waxhaw region of what is now South Carolina, both of his parents and his brothers were born in Ireland. The Jacksons came to the American colonies from Northern Ireland around 1765.
